The Eurasian collared dove brings out differing emotions in people. Some love them; others hate them. I happen to love them. They’re fun to watch and their call (the repetitiveness of which is mainly what drives some people nuts) reminds me of Mexico, so I feel like I’m on holidays without leaving home.
This fellow landed on my mildewy gutters the other day. (You’ll have to forgive the green stuff on the gutters because they’re too high to clean regularly.) But on with what happened.
Proving once again that life has its “ups and downs.”
