Mourning Doves in the Snow

During the big snowstorm on January 4, 2018 the Mourning Doves that Marc feeds huddled by their dish on the air-conditioner while the wind and snow blew.

    Amazing the power of nature and what animals know instinctively to do. Thanks for sharing!

    We didn’t get the amount of snow you did – only about 5″, but we are suffering through frigid temps right now. It is 8 degrees at the moment, with wind chills down in the minus numbers. Love to Marc – and you! Cathy

      It’s defiantly colder that usual. The birds defiantly know where and how to get food. They tap on the window for Marc. I can walk right up to them when the window is shut.

    We’ve heard about the severe snow and storms even DownUnder in Australia. Hope you all have good heating and there are shelters for the homeless (and birds).

    I noted on the international news & weather that even Florida got some snow.

    Here, I have put out large dishes of water for the sparrows doves and finches in preparation for our extremely hot day of 42C (about 108F), but a cool change is expected overnight and the temp will drop to the low 20s C in Melbourne, Aust.

      I’m staying home as much as possible during this cold spell.

    Brrr – brrr — and brrr. Oh it looks so cold there, Sherry. How very lucky those mourning doves are to have food presented to them. Your photos are great — really demonstrate the atmosphere well.

      Thanks Jet. It is really frigid. Marc enticed the dove to come onto windowsill inside. then a rock pigeon saw and stated to follow. I don’t want pigeons in the house so I put a stop to it.

    These are precious images, they certainly knew how to warm up a bit. Hopefully the weather settles soon.
