Mourning Dove in the Snow

...sometimes we enter art to hide within it. It is where we can go to save ourselves, where a third-person voice protects us.

I love it when birds puff themselves like that. So cute.

I've come across a few mourning dove pictures today!
He looks cold but he's probably nice and warm all puffed up. Reminds me of myself when I'm walking these cold mornings. I'm puffed up in layers of clothing. : )

Love them all puffed up. Mine have been sitting similarly with the cold lately. Just sitting in the middle of the yard. Making easy target for the hawk! So dumb but pretty.
