Wild Bird Wednesday–More baby birds

This week I found a pair of young Mourning Doves nestled into the grass under the feeders.

I thought it interesting how they face opposite directions. I’ve often seen this behavior in a flock on the ground, they form a circle, facing outward. It reminds me of the days of the wild west expansion when the covered wagons would be circled for the night. Not that I was there, mind you.

Sharing with Wild Bird Wednesday, where everyone is welcome to link up and share their bird photos. Thanks, Stewart, for providing us a place to share and see birds we otherwise would not.
