Unfortunately another dove hit the sliding glass doors. I didn't see it on the patio so hopefully it wasn't injured.
This also happened in February 2010, and I blogged about it then. Doves have powder down feathers, (extremely fine feathers that disintegrate into a dust-like substance). This powder down creates a dove ghost when they strike a window!
Observing nature is quite fascinating to me and it causes me to think of the magnificent Creator of these amazing details!
