Peaceful Doves

What fickle weather we are having in Central Queensland - two very heavy frosts on Thursday and Friday morning followed by warm afternoons.  Today no frost but it's been cold all day and is now overcast and showery.  Although it has developed into a cold, miserable day the reward has been a house yard  alive with birds.

One group of visitors was a little flock of peaceful doves who dropped in around midday with their feathers all fluffed up against the wind. 

They fed on grass seeds at the bottom of our front steps. 

And then were gone...  A very pleasant, but brief interlude.

  1. Pretty birds!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  2. Beautiful birds and great photos. I have tried several times to photograph our doves but they are allways to scared and fly away...

  3. That dove is pretty! Our dove here which we call morning dove is a bit light brown-ish. This one is blue it's beautiful!
