In the beginning (well, almost)…

I thought I should start my first WordPress blog by going down memory lane…

These pictures take us back (almost) to the start of my birding years three decades ago, when I was a teenager in Ontario.

These three Mourning Dove shots were taken in the backyard of our house in Toronto back in May 1982. The one above and directly below were of a nest in one of our crabtrees; the picture at the end of this post features a lovely pair enjoying the sun.

What always struck me about these birds (aside from their beauty) is how fearless they can be.
