Mourning Doves Drinking Habits


What an honor it is to be in the company of mourning doves and to witness them enjoying the amenities in my rooftop garden, such as one of the water sources I provide.




Most birds drink by dipping their bill in water and throwing their head back to swallow. Pigeons and doves are able to immerse their beaks and can drink continuously (as seen in the next image of a mourning dove).


As you can see, the eye-lids of mourning doves are blue!
This is one of many facts that is discussed in both the digital (iBook and ePub) and softcover version of Words In Our Beak Volume One.




ADDENDUM FALL 2018: 

The digital versions of Volume One within the Words In Our Beak book series that are mentioned in this entry may only remain available for a limited time, but hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now be found wherever books are sold.


Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books.

Additionally,  I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
