This blogs sole purpose has transitioned to one of keeping in touch with each other. Over the years it has been primarily for letting everyone know what is happening and also for promotion to add more folks to our Winter Texan family. The core of things has changed and we must change along with it. We still want to know what is happening with our friends no matter where they may be located. So continue to let us know where you are and what is on your plate.
I am missing seeing these kind of doves. I took this picture in Magnolia Village last season. They are common in south Texas but this is a bird we would never see up here in Wisconsin. We've been seeing lots of birds but our dove is the Mourning Dove and we do have lots of those. This White-winged Dove is bulkier than the Mourning Dove and I would see them often when I was out on my morning walk. They would often be perched up on a wire over by Cottonwood and Pecos Streets.
