White Wing Dove - Behavior

Recommended Posts

I know these guys white wing doves, but I hadn't seen this behavior until about a week ago when we had three of them down in the yard doing this. I just happened to come out with my camera when I noticed these same two doing the same thing on the tree. Reminds me of a broken wing type of behavior, but I hadn't seen this in doves around here in San Antonio,

They are sunning themselves. They do it to get just get full exposure to the suns rays... many doves do this behavior.

I've had Mourning Doves give me the broken wing routine when I've gotten too close to their nest. But always on the ground.

That was my thought.  I've seen Mournings do this regularly but always on the ground.

Thanks very much folks. I just hadn't seen this behavior. Now that I know they are sunning themselves,,maybe I should put some sunscreen out for them 🙂
