Spirit Dove

Spirit Dove

Late one afternoon I spotted this beautiful mourning dove as she stretched and preened on a weathered post near the site of an old farmstead. Set among a field of wildflowers, there is a peaceful, almost spiritual quality to this simple scene. The house is long gone, but the General Field, as it is now called, is conservation land, which provides the perfect habitat for this widespread dove. No bait was used and it is not of concern on the IUCN Red List. Located in Groton, Massachusetts, USA
