A Mourning Dove for Saturday Critters

We have a beautiful Ornamental Crabapple Tree near Bird Alley and its very beautiful in its blooming this year.I clicked this picture of a Mourmimg Dove posing with the Crabapple in the background.

Although I didn't have many exciting sightings this week.  I did see a Belted Kingfisher near a favourite pond.  I usually see a Kingisher there every spring but this year it did not seem to be around!. However I was so very pleased to see one on the power lines above the shores of the pond this week
I am posting today to Eileen's viewing nature with Eileen's Saturday Critters meme which can be found at;

The Kingfisher is a very good sighting! We see them fly sometimes but it's hard to find where they light. Love the dove and that pretty background! Hugs!
