Armchair Birdwatcher

I’m an armchair birdwatcher. This winter, the only regular visitors to my birdfeeder have been Mourning Doves. I snapped these pictures this afternoon from the coziness of my kitchen.

Mourning Dove from my kitchen window

Mourning Doves in the snow

This is the real reason why I removed all the screens from the kitchen windows last fall. The snow flurries did a great job at hiding my dirty windows!

  1. Wonderful shots and great bird feeder. Mine is hanging in a tree, so the limbs get in my way, so I want to get a better feeder on a pole that I can put nearby. I did get a shot of some doves that were in the tree.

      Thanks! Paul made the birdfeeder for me as a Christmas gift about 10 years ago. It looks a little worse for wear, but I love it!
