White-winged dove

White-Winged Dove on Ashe Juniper 1237

On the morning of December 10, as the squirrels began to settle down from their frantic chasing, a group of white-winged doves, Zenaida asiatica, increasingly took the squirrels’ place outside my window and warmed up in the shafts of sunshine coming through the branches of an Ashe juniper tree, Juniperus ashei. If you have an imagination like mine, you may see this dove’s frontmost feathers as tiny seashells.
