Doves are often sited as emblems of peace, and in Christian circles of the Holy Spirit. Doves must have earned this reputation some how, and I was watching a family of three Collared Doves last week on a neighbor's garden and roof. In this image we see two Doves (one of which was a juvenile) sharing very happily with a sparrow and a wren (on the left). they were all quite happy to be there and the smaller birds seemed to trust the larger Doves implicitly. How wonderfully God made nature..
