Mourning Doves

I know the picture is a little dark, but I took this on the zoom setting through my back door. These mourning doves have been nesting in our backyard for a few years now. I caught them when they were beginning their mating ritual. They have clutched once already this season. The baby has left the nest and now this pair is getting ready for another clutch.

They have a really sweet call and when I'm up early enough, I like to sit and listen to them while I'm having coffee and waking up.
