Stock Doves

Every morning this week a pair of Stock Doves have visited the garden. They spend most of their time under the seed feeders feeding on any seeds scattered by the smaller birds:

Unfortunately I wasn't able to video the pair together but did manage a short clip of one:



Even without direct sunlight the metallic like neck feathers can be seen clearly and are an easy way to identify which type of dove it is.

  1. They just wait for everyone else to drop the seed on the ground John. Minimum effort, maximum effect.{:))

Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
