My friend Shelly from Michigan sent Bob, her dove, down for some photos. He started out shy and stayed by the street at first. He did give me that I'll be around look.
Bob is very photogenic and Shelly has trained him well. He came the next day and posed in my Ohio Buckeye Tree. Note that the tree is starting to bud and will wait until the weather warms before going into action.
I went to one of my favorite flooded fields and the Canadian Geese were putting on quite the show. They were none to happy with the racket the other flock was making and let them know in no uncertain way. Please note the aggressive posture. The ducks behind could care less.
