Out of all the birds in my backyard, I think I like watching the Eurasian collared doves best. While the finches and hummingbirds are all in such a magnificent hurry, the doves peck around on the ground like they have all the time in the world. They seem so calm and gentle, much like their call. They methodically pick out the seeds they want and meander around to find more. And then, when it's time to fly away, they flutter away with the wind whistling through their wings like they're in a hurry after all.
