Well my 3rd bird shot to be posted.
We were leaving the house when I forgot my cellphone, as I walked into the kitchen I saw these two doves on our deck and they were snuggling up. Unfortunately I didn't get shots of that, I had to settle with some shots like this.

This was shot through the window of our sliding door.

C&C appreciated.

As English is my 2nd language can somebody tell me the difference, if there is one, between doves and pigeons :)

Thanks for the nice comments people.

See in Dutch, my 1st language, we don't have a different name for the rats with wings, but the funny thing is we use the rats-with-wings reference as well.

When I was a young boy growing up we called these Morning Doves because we heard them most in the morning. Later on I learned that they were in fact Mourning Doves because of the mournful sound they make.

Beautiful! I beg to differ on the pigeons! I've seen some pretty ones around here! Rats with wings? Nah!
Thanks for the comment Dianne.

Pigeons carry a lot of diseases with them, hence the name rats not because they look ugly :)

In my hometown it's know there are certain pigeons that only eat French fries with ketchup, they won 't eat them if there is no ketchup on it. Shows you what "domestication" can do to "wildlife".
