Hmmmph

Things seemed a bit frosty between these love doves. These are mourning doves and live life up all over our suburbs. They stick around year long recycling nest all around my house. The name is befitting as they have quite the melancholic coo in the late evenings. I also live near train tracks so the dove coos coupled with the train whistle in the distance can really strike a brooding mood late in the day.

  1. I just ran across this. Great post – I really enjoyed it. Reminded me of a post I did on an experience in nature as a teenager. It starts out:

    “Some things in life just can’t be explained. Why do very simple events in our life, that usually occur during childhood, print an indelible mark in our memory cells and register with us so completely that, even as older adults, we remember the finite details . . .”

    Here’s the link: http://johnarcher11.wordpress.com/2011/03/09/natures-silent-music/

  2. I love this – their seeming indifference and the three lines. I’ve a similar image, somewhere in this year’s archives, of two wood pigeons sitting close together on a power line but looking in different directions. It makes me smile.
