Dove bird
The Mourning Dove is found throughout California. It is found in the desert in the summer (not in winter). These birds are probably able to survive the deserts in summer because they spend most of their time on the ground where the temperatures are cooler and they are protected from the harsh desert winds. They move out of higher elevations in winter as snow prevents them from foraging on the ground.

Salaam Ali
Nice Bird and good compose
Good POV and framing.
-- SADEGH --

First of all it's such a pleasure to be among your favorite. Thank you.
This is a fine image, Good quality with beautiful and natural colors. Good focus considering you have to shoot it through branches, and the bird is hiding in the shade. I like doves, they are very peaceful, they come to my backyard sometimes. I enjoy watching them. Thanks for the lovely image.

Ottimo ritratto, complimenti! Colori molto naturali.

Ciao e grazie, Emanuele
