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.
