Well the plan was cockatoos or rainbow lorikeets, but then these cuties decided to visit the tree outside my home.
These are Peaceful Doves which are a type of pigeon native to Australia and New Guinea.
They are often found in pairs, groups or flocks.
I usually see them scuttling along on the ground. They are ground feeding birds. These ones were roosting on sunset, getting comfortable in the tree outside our place.
I am pretty sure they were all paired up and loved up with two females and two males with blue around their eyes.
They are so little and delicate looking. They also make pretty good puff balls as they were doing in the tree, fluffed up for the night.
See, little cuties.
