Morning, doves, sparrow and deer

Our regular deer herd
I enjoy watching them perch here.
She looks at me...

She looks up at the mourning doves,
as if to ask them to send some bird seed down!
Our usual group. Sometimes 5, sometimes 7.

I don't know why they lined up for me!
Meantime, in the front yard, at that bird feeder. Pouffy mourning dove sits on the Catalpa tree branch.
They seem to go back and forth.

Can you spot it?
In the Spruce tree, an American Sparrow takes a rest, hiding form the falling snow.
Shelter from the storm
happy American sparrow

Interesting that you have American tree sparrows in the winter. We see them on fall and spring migrations.
