This Morning Outside

A baby mourning dove just fledged from its nest. It still has downy feathers poking out among its new flight feathers. You can see that its wing and tail feathers are not full grown yet. The feathers are beautifully fresh and perfect. I've never had so good a look before at a baby mourning dove.
