Mourning Dove


This morning dove was traveling through Ocala and decided to visit the Trilogy Resort.  It was a beautiful, warm morning; the various exercise groups had not yet arrived to work out in the swimming pool and thus it was the perfect time for a morning dove to contemplate a quick bath before resuming her journey.

Isn't it sweet sitting there enjoying the quiet early morning before the swimmers arrive Lowell. They are lovely gentle birds. Happy weekend to you both ✨

Maybe she was contemplating moving in.

They're such peaceful birds.

Hope she enjoyed herself. If only she could read blogs and see how pretty she looked on your photo :)

A nice quiet moment for the dove before the hectic day begins.

I thought we would see him doing laps in the pool!

Such a pretty bird! I'd like to sit around the pool for a while also.

She looks so pretty sitting there! I used to have quite a few mourning doves in my yard, but since I had a lot of my trees taken down, I haven't seen as many. I miss them.

We have a small flock of mourning doves that hang out in our garden. They don't have pink patches like this one. They seem like sweet birds. The closest they come to doing laps is in our bird bath. Not big enough for a real workout.

it is nice of her to allow the people to use her watering hole!
