Doves first–the little flock of Ground-doves was back in the yard today. Here are two of them.

These tiny doves are only about 6 inches long, around the size of a sparrow. There was a group of 5 or 6 in the backyard today, until Max ran outside and scared them up into the trees.

Another bird for today–can you guess what it is?

A Mockingbird of course, our most common bird around here.

Mockingbirds tend to be bold, assertive birds that don’t mind people (or cameras). This one continued to look around the area while I was taking photos.
