    Doves having their breakfast

    Remember that true story I told a few weeks ago. Well it has got to the stage now where I don't have to go to the bird feeder for the Doves. They come to me.
    Every morning I go out my back door for a cigarette (I know, I did stop for a month, but it got the better of me) and these two are waiting for me on the fence.
    Not razor sharp as I'm a bit shaky first thing.

    Crikey Dave, next week they'll be sitting at the table banging their spoons.

    Lovely set

    LOL! Looks like you are having a great time with your new pets! Can you tell them apart? If so, have you given them names yet?

    All you need now is something more photogenic for them to sit on as they have breakfast. Perhaps something with branch-like perches so that their feet are more confortable (like your finger?). I know! It's hard enough to photograph birds with two free hands, let alone one with bird seed and twit on it! LOL!

    No names. The Doves is all I say to my wife.

    I shall build a little bistro for them

    I sure have Dave. I tried to get one to land on my hand this morning. It was on the fence about 2 foot away, looking at me cooing, but wouldn't take that jump

    The only way I can tell is one is more vocal than the other. I'm guessing that's the female *slaps own hand*
