Our doves...

I thought the birds of Buenos Aires would be more colourful than they so far appear. I imagined there would be large and brightly coloured birds similar to those I saw on the east coast of Australia, but that has not been the case. The birds we've seen are dull of colour and for the most part small. Unlike cities in Canada, there are no crows, and unlike Dawson City, there are absolutely no ravens. Considering the collection of  garbage that forms each day at intersections, that is a good thing.

We are visited each morning, and again in the early evening, but some dove-like birds. Their calls first thing at sunrise greet the day. They are often together and highly affectionate.

Hmmm. What's all this then?
