The Mating Dance
The Mating Dance by Balisha
Early in the morning.. I heard a familiar sound..
I searched for what was calling and looked upon the ground.
A pair of Mourning Doves were scratching at some seed..
I thought.." My feeder's are so full...there isn't any need.
To scratch and peck and find some seeds that had fallen to the ground..
My feeder's full above them....if they would turn around."
Just then they hopped up on the rail...it seems they read my mind..
They looked at me and tipped their heads and murmured you're so kind.
They went about their business.. ducking and bobbing while they fed..
The cardinal came to feed and tipped his pretty head.
And then as I was turning round the male made his move...
He nuzzled Mrs. Dove... and then put on his groove.
He strutted so and dipped his head and then she nuzzled back..
They were oblivious to things around... while they made their cooing sound.
I peeked at them and watched their moves and thought I was being rude..
To see these birds so happy ....I really couldn't intrude.
I thought a while and turned away... I knew that I could see...
These birds were wanting to be alone... and have some privacy.
So if you see a pair of birds... doing the mating dance...
Just mind your business and turn away and give the birds a chance. :)
