Very nice. Isn't there supposed to be two of them tho?
Whoa, I thought you were calling me turtle dove for a minute there.
I do love 'em. There's a couple of them that visits my bird feeder.
Great close-up, I'm not sure I have ever seen a turtle dove in my area.
It's beautiful! But why turtle?
Lovely capture and treatment! Very nice--and yes, I do.
The feathers are beautifully detailed on your photo.
What in the world is our beloved Doree doing down your way?! We have had a pair of nesting doves on our deck. Once she laid eggs in our deck flower pot, another time she used one of our deck chairs. Fun to see the little ones fledge.
Beautiful and lovely shot !! Dove is so beautiful !!
Love? He looks a little standoffish. Never trust a turtle dove who won't look you in the eye.
Cooooo wooooo coooooHark I hear the Turtle Dove! MB
belle photo, peut être un rendez vous amoureux ?
Nice photo! There is a certain kind of dove here that is very pretty, with a dark ring around its neck. I have a photo of one my neighbor feeds when it comes to her window sill, so I will post it soon.
Nice one! You make it look like a painting. Speaking of birds, I loved your comment about the owl - that owls always seem to look "dangerously bored." I'd never thought of that, but you are right on target! Their expressions make sense now!
You have me billing and cooing before sunrise, Jacob.
What a sweet face!
Gorgeous. This bird seems fairly comfortable hanging out on this rail. We see lots of doves around here..... but in high places. Roof tops, trees, telephone poles..... never at eye level like this.
The name in Italian is 'tortora', from the Latin 'turtur', which is probably the common source of the term for both languages.
Yes, I do. We have some that live in our cedar hedge and I love it when they coo, cooo, cooo,
@ VP - Methinks you must know everything! :-)
Actually, I could live without them! :)
very beautiful image
Yes I do love them and I have a lot of them in my backyard! I'm finally back to visiting everyone again after the wedding hoopla. It's good to be back in my normal routine.
We can 'em mourning doves .. pretty ...
We have some Mourning Doves that nest in our yard that look like this. We also get a flock of ten Ringed Turtle Doves that spend time in the yard. They have a dark ring around the back of the neck and are a little bigger and they have a different call. I like the doves but not so much the Pigeons which are also called "Rock Dove". I don't know why that is. You made a beautiful portrait of this little one.
Beautiful, even though they do somehow remind me of their yucky windowsill cousins.
Really posing for the picture... Great shot!God bless you!Cezar
@ JM - I have no idea. They are called by other names in other areas. I think they're really a pigeon in disguise! :-)
They are such pretty birds. Beautiful photo!
