This is the position they were in most of the time I happened to glance out the window. They are diving for food and goodness knows we have plenty of vegetation around our pond! As in moss and some kind of green viney thing that the name of escapes me at the moment! I know it is pesky and hard to get rid of. Any country folks out there know what I'm talking about and how to get rid of it besides using chemicals?
This is the same bird as the pale looking dove I had in a mosaic a few posts ago. I've been trying to get a closer shot of him as I didn't think he was a Mourning Dove because of being a much lighter gray and then I noticed the band on the nape of his neck and found him to be a Eurasian Collared-Dove. They have recently been moving into Missouri.
It's supposed to rain and/or snow. Maybe 1 or 2 inches of snow tonight. They, whoever they are, are saying another big snow is coming in March. But the grass is getting greener and I counted 32 Robins the other day so I know spring will be here eventually. That means I better get started on some of the projects that I was too lazy to tackle this winter. Which means there will more than likely be a bigger lull between blog posts. So if I don't show up for several days at a stretch, you know I'm working! I'll still try to keep up with visiting, that's my way of relaxing. Thanks to all of you who visit and comment. I appreciate you more than you know!
Until next time...
