These two Mourning Doves were going through their courtship rituals outside my window a couple of days ago.
The male on the right has puffed himself up so he'll look bigger, stronger, and more handsome than all those other guy doves.
The female is a bit puffed up as well, her vanity is showing, I think. She's looking a bit askance at the male...she isn't sure she likes him yet. But she soon decided she did, and hopefully they'll live happily ever after.
These birds are also known as Turtle Doves.
Most doves mate for life, by the way.
