Feathers On Friday

Here is my FoF post. I am still excited about the dove... please put up with just one more post. They have now decided to become feeder birds, not just sit there and preen. Before, if they came, they would stand by the feeder and not eat a seed, just preen. However today, they ate. I also discovered that these generally peaceful birds are bullies; scaring away the feeding birds.

I also had an interesting experience with doves yesterday. I observed one eating sunflower seeds whole. Intrigued, I kept watching and slowly but surely it's throat expanded as it held the seeds in there for the young doves.
