As feet firmly gripped
around the tree branch.......
Rain around him dripped
But claws didn't unclench!
The dove had a super cleaning
Before done preening...

I think the mourning doves have become permanent fixtures now and they came in the rain eat on the feeder ...This one flew to the branch when it was done eating.

Best View in Light box! Thanks!

    I'm so happy that the mourning doves have made themselves at home. They couldn't have chosen a better place. He looks so very content and beautiful here. Glorious tones and detail in this remarkable capture!
