Nest Building Mourning Dove

"Gentle Spring's around the corner, 
Waiting just to show her face 
And to bring us flowers and sunshine; 
Winter's almost run his race! 
Be not, then, my friends, discouraged 
That there's cold and ice and sleet; 
For Springtime soon will be with us, 
And the flowers we will greet: 
Daffodils, so bright and yellow, 
Hyacinths of varied hues, 
As they nod their heads, in gladness, 
Telling us they bring good news..." 
~ Gertrude Tooley Buckingham

Such a lovely photo. Mourning Doves are one of my favorite birds. They seem so gentle.
