A Bird in the Bush

Immature Mourning Dove

There was something unusual about this bird when we saw it at the Kennedy Space Center. It just didn’t look quite like any dove that I was familiar with. I attempted several times to get its photo as it moseyed throughout the bush. Finally it made this appearance so I could identify it once I got home to our bird books. It turned out to be an immature mourning dove, which goes to show that when you have a bird in a bush it is good to have a book or two in hand.
