Mourning Dove (photo by Marcy Cunkelman)The first bird I saw in this new year was a mourning dove zooming across the sky before dawn. 

It’s amazing how fast they fly in the dark.

Happy New Year!

    Beautiful color on this mourning dove. Not a color seen frequently in things made by (wo)man.

    Happy New Year! Living near the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers means eagle watching! Looking forward to a raptor filled January and to reading your lovely bird blog!
