Dove in the Barnyard

12 Jan

When I was doing chores in the bitter cold on Sunday, I enjoyed some sunshine (the day after this picture was taken).


I also noticed a dove in the barnyard.


I’m afraid s/he was not happy with the cold weather.


Hopefully, the hay and bits of grain helped him/her out.



Sharing with the Barn Collective and Wild Bird Wednesday.

      Our temperatures have been a roller coaster. I always worry about lungs with those drastic changes.

    Glad she got shelter in your barn. What is the last bird?

      It’s the same dove. She just got scared by the goose and flew up to the tree. She came right back down though.

  3. Teresa, the cooing of the dove is such soothing sound. Our temperatures have been a roller coaster also, its been crazy! Thanks for sharing this week and please return soon.

    I hope the doves will be ok with the cold, they seem to do ok here in the winter. Great series of photos. Enjoy your day!

      We’ve had crazy warm and cold back-and-forth weather. I do hope s/he’s okay now.

    Great pictures too much snow there for me

    • Teresa at 6:30 pm #

      We don’t really have very much snow. Just cold.

    Enjoyed your pictures and especially enjoyed the little dove. Don’t blame her for not being happy with the cold. I’m not too happy with it either 🙂

      Luckily we’ve warmed up for a couple of days, but it’s supposed to be frigid again this weekend.

    I rally like the shape of the barn roof! We have mourning doves living in the cedars in our backyard. They love to hang out on our kitchen steps in cold weather because our feeders are easily reached from there. 😉

      I do love my barn! Those doves know what a good thing they have with you!

    I don’t blame the dove for not liking the cold! I’m not fond of it either!. That’s why I love living here in western Oregon! She looked so miserable! I like doves and was surprised to hear someone say one day, that she hates them!

    • Teresa at 6:47 pm #

      I don’t know why anyone would hate doves. Odd.

    I´m glad the dove found some shelter. 🙂

    • Teresa at 6:47 pm #

      I do think s/he was happy to snuggle in the hay.

    What a sweet dove…hope he was happier when the sun came out. Beautiful photos of him and of the barnyard!

      It’s warmed up considerably. That will help until the weekend when it gets cold again.
