Sights and sounds of spring

This morning I woke to the cooing sounds of the mourning doves that live in our conifer trees. It was a sound that I had to get used to when I first started noticing it last spring.  Today, when I heard them, it was glorious.  I was eager to get out of bed and in a great mood.


Just the other day I realized aloud at dinner that they must migrate and maybe they would be back soon. They are back now.  I looked into the subject and I found out that they do migrate.
