The view from my perch on the mountain

One Thing Leads to Another




If there is one thing I don’t need it’s to get kicked off Word Press for posting burd porn!

Spring is in the air and the critters is actin’ like wild animals!


This pair of Mourning Doves (Zenaida macroura ) landed in the maple just above me and the small horses this afternoon.





“You burds need to get a room!”






“You heard Buddy, get a room! He’s so embarrassed he’s blushing from head to tail!”

* Actually, Molly had a cat treed in this shot and that’s what she was staring at but the expression on her face seemed to fit the situation so…………….


I don’t speak Burd but I could swear this guy was saying “WOO-HOO!”






According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology web page for Mourning Doves it looks like we’ll probably have a few new additions to the flock in the near future………..and that’s all I have to say about that!

BTW: As most of you know I have been known to get into trouble when left without adult supervision. With that in mind I showed this to THE BOSS before publishing it and asked if I should publish it. She said “Yes, most assuredly!” ……so any complaints should be directed to her. I will be more than happy to provide her e-mail address and/or cell phone number upon request.

  3. The female burd needs to play hard to get at least! Demand chocolate.
