Mourning Dove in the Shade!

Summer time, and the living is easy! Or so it seems for this mourning dove, sitting quietly and enjoying the shade (and safety) underneath one of my 3-in-1 pear trees! This lucky bird has been in this spot for at least 20 minutes! The bird is in the middle of the photo, amidst the shadows.

Several mourning doves have similarly rested underneath these particular trees. I am happy that my trees provide fruit for me and respite for the birds!

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE:  The seeds of pears are highly toxic if ingested.  More information on toxic plants can be found here:
