I wasn’t sure what this bird was at first, but his postion in a dead tree made an interesting image.
Mourning Doves are fast when they take off, and I don’t think I ever got an image of one in flight before.
He had flight skills to show off, too.
Did I say fast? And also they are prone to changing their flight plan as they go, so tracking him didn’t pan out so well. But he was looking right at me as he went by.
