Swan's Night and Morning Doves...

The Swans came last night at dusk.  Only the Male came up into the yard and was scouring for seeds that had dropped from the feeder.  I threw him a few bits of bread.  And then he wandered back to the water and disappeared with his mate off into the darkness.  You can see the street light on the street behind us...

Always the view through my window and too cold to open it up so the reflection from the room is in the glass-ha!

He managed to find some fallen seed from the feeder.

and then he bid a fond farewell and strolled into the darkness...

This morning, we were greeted by the Mourning Doves who frequent our yard.  They, too were scouring the ground under our many feeders looking for seeds.  I love their feathers and the beautiful design.

They always come in pairs and when I went to snap pictures through the window, the squirrel chased one away-ha!  He did not take fly, just waddled swiftly away!

I really do feel for you that have so much snow but I really hate looking at the browns of winter as seen in these pictures.  Snow is serene and beautiful to see...

Color your day a Rainbow !

Have a good day and come back and visit soon!  Check out http://kerrieskrafts3.blogspot.com  to

Love your swan and dove! The swan must have been extremly hungry to come in your yard at night!! I kind of like that first picture, your room is on the left and outside on the right, almost looks like it was put together on purpose like that!

Lovely photos - I enjoy our birds here so much as well and am glad that there is at least no snow or ice for them to content with, even though I really would love to see some snow again...but, it's not up to me!

Thank you, Kerrie, for the nice photos of your feathered friends.

I love mourning doves. I find their call hauntingly beautiful - they are such gentle, lovely birds.
