While I love the mournful coos of mourning doves, a bird that seems to be very prevalent in and around Phoenix, I often wonder if the locals find them as commonplace or even annoying as robins here in the Midwest or seagulls along the coast.
I captured an awful lot of photos of them during my recent trip. Here are three of my favorites. What do you think? Do you have a favorite below?
Dove Photo #1. A mourning dove checks me out from high up in a Saguaro cactus at the Desert Botanical Garden.
Dove Photo #2. This dove posed for quite a while on the thick branch of a joshua tree.
Dove Photo #3. These love birds allowed me to get rather close and snap several photographs of them.
