White winged Dove
I thought I would include a video of white winged dove. We have plenty of these birds in Texas.
Most of the white winged doves in our neck of mesquites do not migrate south for the winter here. This morning I saw a dove on the ground, umm, er, snow in the backyard. My old dog went outside. The bird didn't fly away so assumed it met its death. My dog went over to the bird to sniff it then she went about her business of checking out the rest of the yard. My dog plopped down in her favorite place to watch the world go by.
I'm watching this bird from my art studio window. I realize the bird's head is looking around. The bird obviously has spent many summer hours with my dog for the bird to know she is safe from my dog attacking. My dog doesn't have one ounce of bird dog in her and lets the birds hop around while she is outside.
The bird has flown off now.
