|Deanna and the baby Mourning Dove♥|
The bird calmly watching her, listening to her voice...
as she watched the bird, listening to his chirps:)

"Children are fascinated by nature discovery. When parents revisit natural
wonders through the eyes of children, we’re reminded that life, when all is said
and done, is still infinitely remarkable. Taking time to really get to know the birds
who share our habitat is a wonderful pastime for families. It’s good, clean fun, and
builds values of respect and compassion for nature and all living things."
