I'll just say it - I'm not a fan of birds. In fact, they kind of freak me out. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that one pooped on my head when I was a kid. Not a pleasant memory!
These birds (I'm not sure what they are - Morning Doves, maybe?) are always hanging around my deck. They aren't injured, or nesting, or anything, they just hang out and won't fly away even if you get up close to them. It's the strangest thing. I wish they would find a different spot to hang out!
