Never eat like a bird

Not all the birds at the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge are waterfowl.  There are other birds who find the refuge a fun place to visit.  But I was a little concerned about the following two birds.

Okay, it looks like this bird has eaten enough to hibernate through the winter.  And, um...I'm assuming it is a male.   Then, on another branch, probably its mate?  See below.

Seriously, I've discovered my mistake.  All my life I've been trying to eat like a bird.  Perhaps that is where I went wrong.

    1. Actually, I'm not sure what they are. There is a fabulous bird expert who occasionally happens upon this blog and lets me know what type of birds I have posted.

    2. I'm pretty sure they are Mourning Doves. Where is that fabulous expert, anyway?

    3. Jewell, they DO look like doves. Fluffy ones.
