I looked out the back door on July 2 nd when I got home from work and saw both WW Doves on my feeder. It was the first time had seen more than one in a few weeks. I take this as good news and hope when I get back home there will be young coming to my feeder as well.
The next day I left for Houston, Texas. The Doves I am hearing most are White-winged Doves. I’ve seen and heard Mourning Doves but not that many.
During the 25 years I lived in the Houston area I only saw Mourning Doves and an occasional Inca dove. No White Wings.
It’s not all fireworks, friends, and family, I did go birding Thursday to Brazos Bend State Park. I saw most of my favorites, Purple Gallinules with little black chicks, a Tri-colored Heron, Anhingas, a Roseate Spoonbill flyover, lots of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, White Ibis, Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Little Blue Herons, Yellow-crowned Night Herons, Cattle Egrets are not my favs but they’re here, too. But it’s too early for Wood Storks.
