This is the first time we have been visited by a pair of Peaceful Doves in the 25 years we have been here. I was delighted to see them come for a drink on one of the hottest days this summer. I had heard them in the garden but hadn’t been able to track them down.
They are so pretty with pale blue patches around the eye, blue tones on the neck and lovely stripes. So far they have stayed with us and I hope they breed here. I have trouble with cats that come across the paddocks & that is a real concern.
