I had some Kodak Vision3 250D loaded up on my Nikon and slapped on my Nikkor 70-300mm for fun. I finally got a good look. Wow, look at them eyes, I thought. Look and the orange paired with the blue/teal eye ring.
Now that I realize the beauty of the White Winged Dove, that what they are called, I started studying them. I noticed them interacting with other birds and noticed how much smarter they are and their heads is huge in comparison to most other birds in my back yard.
