Watercolor painting of mourning doves by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Dove Cluster

Mourning Doves aren’t the smartest birds out there. I’ve seen them nest on the ground in places that were unwise places to nest; yet they somehow rear their young and fill the air with their mournful calls. I put this small flock in a colorful, pebbled setting to mimic the colors in their plumage.
