Last weekend while Adverb and I were visiting his family in Tennessee, we had several encounters with lovely creatures of the winged persuasion.
These are my in-laws' chickens. Aren't they a beautiful, colorful group? The hens gather together while the rooster stays off to the side and keeps an eye on things.
While I was sitting out on the deck enjoying the beautiful weather and knitting, this little visitor landed right on me. It continued to ride on my hand for quite a while, even as my hand moved to knit!
Later, I spotted this little cutie near the back door. It's a baby dove, fresh out of the nest.
In a tree nearby, the mama dove was sitting on the nest and supervising Junior from above.
