photographing and learning about wildlife
A small blue-grey dove. This is one of a pair - they are very shy and generally fly off if we get too close or make any sudden moves!
Our backyard. These birds prefer open dry woodland near a water source.
This bird and its partner have been visiting our yard for about a fortnight. They forage on the ground, but I think they might be roosting in a tree not too far away as I often hear them calling.
