Peter, it is a collared dove, a male I'll guess as it has no pink feathers.
What comes first, your fence or the Collared Dove, lol.
Excellent, Peter. Great color and sharpness. Greetings, Joke
HI Peter Bob is right, Collared Dove rules!! Lovely sharp shots. I have 2 in my garden also. Margaret
lovely, alert portrait!
No respect for your handiwork! Nice portrait anyway. These birds are doing very well in the US, spreading up from Florida into the middle of the country and the west coast.
A beautiful shot! A very detailed look at the Collared Dove.
Hi Peter... Made me laugh right out loud...great shot of your Collard dove!!Birds don't have to run to the bathroom, they just let go wherever! ; ) Grace
I love the soft doves! Try not to dwell on the imperfections (easy for me to say of course -- I didn't just paint the fence).
Wonderful photo, Peter! Time to teach the birds to paint!
Beautiful portrait of this Collared Dove.Regards, Helma
