Seven From the Yard: Day Seven

A family of mourning doves spends much of the day with me in the yard. They alternate between foraging for small bits of sand and stone in the driveway (this aids digestion), perching on the telephone wires, or drinking from the bird baths. They have the unique ability to swallow water with their heads lowered. These constant companions are a calming presence within my environment.

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.
