Mourning doves appear to be to Phoenix what pigeons are to Paris. They are everywhere! I love their soulful sounds and appreciate that they are generally less skittish than many other birds allowing me both more time and a closer proximity to take photos. I caught this guy “mid fluff” as he freshened up on a wall by the golf course on a walk in my sister’s neighborhood last weekend.

Are you still in Phoenix?
No, but the photos will continue for a while because 1) I took so many of them 2) I’m so far behind with everything else after so much travel I’m not taking a lot of other photos, and 3) I am just so sick of the snow and cold here!
HAHAHA I love the mid-fluff shot!
