Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Pigeon or Dove?

I had a visitor who took up residence on the scupper. Not sure why. I don't know if it's a pigeon or someone's white dove. I tired to get it to fly but it wasn't scared of me on the ground.

I wonder how long it will stay.

Hi Marcia, I think this is a dove... it looks to have a slightly pink beak. We once almost bought a house that had a dovecote, often regrettedit! He's probably got a home and will take off soon, but if not, maybe this little guy could be the founder member of a dove cote for you?

Jane - it looks pretty forlorn up there on my scupper. I wonder if it went astray after someone's wedding release.

Hmmm, doesn't look like the doves we have here. Sorry I can't help. But they are great shots!

Thanks for sharing at Fishtail Cottage's Garden party! My dad raises pigeons for showing all over the world - so i sent him your link to see if there are ways to tell the difference between the two! I'll get back to you as soon as i hear from him. xoox, tracie
