those dear doves; I feel for them sitting out in the cold and seeing the ice about them. They sure have a great buffer by the looks of it and your photos is superb Brian

What a wonderfully detailed photo of this sweet dove. We have a few around the yard that feed off the ground and I also throw seeds on the deck for them. I see them sitting in the hemlock tree out of the weather too. I think they are really pretty even though not colourful.

Oh, my. He is so perfect. Hope he maintains warmth by puffing out like that.

It's just amazing, right down to those pink little feet!! Which btw, I had no idea they had pink feet!!

Looks like the guys who look in my front window during these past few bitterly cold weeks. I really admire the soft muted coloring of the doves.
