I was surprised to see...

.. a Mourning Dove in Woodbury yesterday. It was in a residential area. I don't recall seeing one mid winter before.

Now that you mention it, it has been a long while since we've seen one.

I haven't had one since December at my house, but a friend only a block and a half away has several all winter long every winter. Though, come to think of it she has been in Hawaii frown for two weeks and I have not seen one when I filled the feeders. I will have to check with her on the dove status when she gets home. If the doves were smart they would have been the ones in Hawaii.

I have a pair that show up every evening for water and food. There is also a small flock of robins that show up for water every morning.

We've got lots of them in Iowa. Probably the last State that does'nt allow hunting them. Some mornings I'll have one to two dozen of them on the ground feeder. They may seem sweet but they have an attitude to them also.

I haven't seen any doves around here, but the robins are all over the place.

Everyday we have a pair that show up at the watering hole farthest from the house, and then move up to pick up seeds from below the feeders hanging from our deck. I'm still working on purchasing some new digital equip. so I can start to share our fortune with all.

    • The Clinton camp might have thought twice before parading the former beauty queen out to show how bad he is to women considering the extensive list if women her husband has had his fun with over the years. I am surprised that the Republicans haven't made them more if an issue but I suppose they didn't want her to play the victim card but at this point I think they have to take off the gloves and throw it out there.
    • Is that all I'm good for?!         I know the answer is yes....
    • Thanks Lip Ripper, I've looked at a couple of your builds on this page and I never would have noticed that! I've never seen a fish house in my area as the closest lake safe to drive on in the winter is an hour and a half away, so I definitely appreciate all the help I can get from the experts!!!  
    • A teleprompter really helps to not make people look stupid.
    • Team Europe had a chance last night. Leading late into the 3rd and the wheels come off. Even with a PP with under 2 minutes left to play they give up a short handed goal!? Tough one, but Canada is certainly the better team. Glad its over so we can get our players all back with the wild, but I did enjoy the tourney even though the US was terrible.
    • That would have been a fine answer.   Unfortunately instead he sat there with his mouth hanging open (figuratively) and looked like a total dolt.   This is the second time he has handled something in an interview poorly.  I guess he feels he needs the exposure but unfortunately he is not especially good at the interview thing.   At the very least he needs to practice deflecting the question.  Perhaps the "nobody especially" but "I prefer to look to American leaders of the past like (Calvin Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, William Calhoun, whoever he wants)"  He can't just sit there and and look stupid, which is what he did.    Maybe some role playing in preparation would have helped.   He can't be as ignorant and inept as he has come across in TV interviews.
