Mourning Dove

Mourning Dove, Kennebunk, Maine, USA — The Mourning Dove is another bird that only started frequenting our yard last year. I am sure we had a few pass through in previous years, but now that I am using a seed mix in some of my feeders, and there is always spilled millet and milo on the ground, the doves are daily visitors, sometimes a dozen at a time. That is okay by me. It is actually rare to see on up in a tree like this, but they do fly and perch, even though they are primarily ground feeders. Such subtle color. So beautiful. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos. ISO 200 @ f4 @ 1/500th.
