Just as the Canadian Jays or Camp Robbers of Alaska these southern cousins are curious as all get out. They are as noisy or more so than the jays of Alaska. But strikingly beautiful in their blue black and white colorations.
We went to the beach todaybecause when we first got up we checked the temperatures in North Pole Alaska. It was -26 degrees and it was 76 degrees here in Corpus Christi. That's over a hundred degree difference. To celebrate this difference, we went to the beach. Viva La Difference
What I've heard about these little doves is that they are moving into this territory just recently from farther south. They group together to withstand the cool temperatures. They are so pretty, with the feathers being outlined with a darker color than the interior of the feather.
We are in Corpus Christi, Texas. The wind is blowing hard off the gulf when I awoke this morning. Rattling the windows of the RV. Got outside just in time to see a large shooting star. Is that a sign, of bad luck. I certainly hope not.
