HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
I photographed these Common Ground-Doves in Ding Darling NWR, Sanibel, FL. They, as well as the Mourning Doves and Eurasian Collared-Doves, are beginning to breed down here, hence the cosiness. These diminutive little birds, found in the far southern areas of the country, are about half the size of Mourning Doves and just oh, so, cute!
Enjoy your Valentine's Day!
