Trustworthy dove

Collared dove


The collared doves were once wary about coming into the garden while I was out there working ... but now they seem pretty comfy coming to the bird feeder or just hanging out.

Today this one dropped in and he was like "C'mon, tell me a secret. I'm not like those grackles. I can actually KEEP a secret." He looked pretty trustworthy, so we swapped a few stories and laughs and then he snacked on some seeds before heading off ... with some of my best secrets.
