This little fellow has been hopping around a lot lately. His mama stays near but hides better, until he calls out for her, “Cheep!” and then she comes flying over.
We try to sit very, very still so he’ll stay longer.
And there are lots of this family around:
They, too, are waiting for the raspberries to ripen.
Can anyone identify this little lady? She’s very well hidden, nesting on last year’s robins’ nest. I think she’s a mourning dove. She’s so much smaller than the rock pigeons, though…
