Lovely pictures Terra, my two Lovey and Dovey were last seen 2 weeks ago getting very close indeed! I think maybe they are on a nest somewhere now, will let you know when they return hopefully with new additions ;0)

11 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Carole ...
That's nice you have nesting doves :o)

11 Feb, 2013

 

lol Terra, they are special, i so enjoy the doves being around :o)
carole it does sound like they are getting ready for nesting, its a bit cold yet though i thinks, they will need a winter Duvet at the moment haha

11 Feb, 2013

 

Lol. Sandra ... let's hope they moulted enough feathers in the summer to fill their dove duvets ;o)

11 Feb, 2013

 

Lovely blog Terra, I`ve been birdwatching today and have to agree there are Twitterpated birds here as well, Mrs Blackbird isn`t quite" In the Mood" ( love Glenn Miller") judging by her reactions though, she is definitely playing hard to get and was really squawking at poor Mr B..and only interested in food, whereas the Doves are X-rated, we started out with two and now have about a dozen visiting all the time...

11 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Sue... thanks
Goodness ! .. in Lincs, you have very flirty doves !!!

but, seems like Mrs. Blackbird isn't romantic yet ...
maybe she likes different dance music ;o)

11 Feb, 2013

 

Hi TT
I hope you enjoy a cosy week :o) xxx

11 Feb, 2013

 

Thanks Hywel ...
All cosy here, despite the blizzards ! :o) xxx

I like the photos of collar doves. They are so pretty in the sun beams :)

11 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Katarina ...
thank you ...
yes, their feathers do catch the sun very nicely :o)

11 Feb, 2013

 

Lovely dovely blog TT super pictures have a warm and cosy Valentine week :o)

12 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Annie ...
Thanks ..
Ooh ... looks like the stork will be bringing baby doves and baby pigeons to your garden ;o)
.. and I'm sure young Riley will get plenty of hugs on his first Valentines Day ! :o))) xxx

Those Doves are all fuffed up in their own fitted feather duvets TT. Very together birds. Been in our garden and might be snuggled in the big Magnolia next door, but I can't see them from my window. Beautiful feather colouring against that blue sky! Is it that lovely blue sky hovering just over your garden? Sent it over here please TT when you have finished with it. Not sure I want to encourage Mr Grumpy too much on......what day did you say?

Really lovely pictures of a romantic pair! We have lots of them around here, they can be heard cooing all the time! They are also very lovely birds to look at!

Where have you doggies got to lately? It seems a long time since we last saw a blog that they featured in!

12 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Balcony ... Thank you ..
Yes, I agree that the doves are attractive to watch.
I like to see them around my gardens.

Thanks for asking after my doggies... I promise they'll make a reappearance soon! Crocus budgie did feature in my previous 'Sing' blog. :o)

Milder weather due by Thursday, so your allotments and balcony will appreciate the warmer temps !

Happy Valentine's Day to you, Klahanie :o)

Fantastic pics Tt, so clear. We don't get doves in our garden anymore, I think the wood pigeons, which have been courting for weeks, must see them off. I must admit I would prefer the doves:-)

14 Feb, 2013

 

lovley pics, never seen doves that colour before but as you say, the sunlight does make a lot of difference. great shots

16 Feb, 2013

 

Thanks Ba ...
Hi Fran ... thank you
The winter sun was shining across to the silver birch ..
certainly made the doves' feathers look an unusual colour.
