Mourning Dove Music


There's music in the sighing of a reed;
There's music in the gushing of a rill;
There's music in all things, if men had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.
- Lord Byron
We have an abundance of doves here at my house - but I never tire of seeing their sweet little faces and listening to the lovely "coo" they make. Click HERE for A link to their sweet voice.

They sure aren't the brightest birds (intellectually or feathering) but they're such gentle beauties. That's very clear for such a high ISO and through glass.

We don't get many doves for some reason.
It's a striking photo!

I get many doves here and adore them...their understated beauty and their beautiful, yet mournful song.

Lovely photo!

What a lovely picture. The dove's feathers look almost like velvet. Love the colours in the background too.

That's just beautiful, Kerri. The mourning doves are long gone from Maine for the winter, and I am grateful you left a link to their songs. These calls are deeply dug into my heart and my memories. Hearing them calls up so many things.... Thank you!

I'm smiling at this lovely pic of the dove and mellow yellow bokeh!
Not more than ten minutes ago my hubby came in where I was on the computer and looked out at our big ole oak tree. He said, the tree is full of pigeons. I calmly corrected him - doves. :)
I love their cooing sounds.

Lovely photo.

Nice present from hubby and it certainly takes lovely photos! The light in this is really nice. They always seem like gentle, but sort of dumb birds. I usually have a few around in the summer, but don't see them the rest of the year. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Mimi said...

They do make a sweet little sound!
And a pleasant picture too!

Thanks for the go-ahead on using the quote, Kerri. I think the people trying the hand massage will love that quote.

I also love them ... not very bright, but I find their detail lovely!

Beautiful composition, colors, and bokeh. And wow - that looks so clear for being shot at 3200.

I rarely see doves here ... they seem so serene.

Just beautiful Kerri. A real balm for my soul. The quote is very uplifting.
