  4. Masterful! They remind me of a figurehead on a ship, or a beautiful lyrical gargoyle on a cathedral. Beautiful, Bob!

  5. Bob, nice ones! We have a couple of these guys in our yard all the time. Never used to see them, but seems they are expanding their range to include our part of the world!

  13. coo-COO-coo, coo-COO-Coo, coo-COO-coo,... ;-)
    You took again my favourite dove, Bob! Next to its song coo-COO-coo, repeated many times, it also makes a harsh loud screeching call lasting about two seconds,
    particularly in flight just before landing. A rough way to describe the screeching sound is hah-hah.
    I wish you a great weekend, Bob, I'm going to make a short break from blogging, see you soon!
