Doves

I was filling my car today when I looked up and saw this December View.

This was on the corner of a busy intersection (Willowick and San Felipe) at a gas station where I've been trading since I was a small child. I have never seen either the doves or the oranges before.

Today's temp was 75, but freezing is predicted for the weekend. I wonder what it will do to the oranges...

Then the sun came out:

I'm not sure I would have noticed the orange tree if you hadn't mentioned it... it's huge! Great color.

I've been driving through that intersection for half a century and I've never noticed that house or those birds or that citrus tree. What birds are these? Pigeons? If so, I wonder, since that house is in River Oaks, if the resident is violating the rule against keeping poultry. Are pigeons poultry?

PJ's the expert on poultry. Maybe she'll see the Hale post.

I have a few pairs of Mourning Doves that come to my feeder. I love the sound of their cooing:)
