    The black spots on the wings are much less prominent than the white spots on the wings of many woodpeckers.

    Their coloration isn’t flashy, but it is incredibly beautiful. The males have patches of iridescent colours on their necks, and I love the colours around their eyes, it looks like they are wearing cosmetics. Every now and then, I’m lucky and get a shot with eyes closed -- the eyelid colour is soft blue. And their eyes are garnet red.

    Yeah, it is beautiful. The spots are slightly reminiscent of cheetah spots. And yes, she seems to have blue eyeshadow and dark claw polish and beakstick.

    Thanks, Saad.

    Cherbear, I love hearing Mourning Doves, and I’m so glad they are back. We had Eurasian Collared Doves move in a few years back, and they are aggressive bullies, so we lost our Mourning Doves for a while.
