I love birds, and here are some of my favorites. A pair of Mourning Doves. Doves are beautiful and the most gentle birds I know of.
Old folks call'em Rain Crows. I don't know how that got started exactly, but many people around here still think they are Rain Crows. When we were growing up, and the old folks heard a Dove calling, they would say, "It's gonna rain, I hear a Rain Crow."
A couple of years ago, some friends were visiting, when a Mourning Dove perched on an electric line near our house began to call. They said, "There's a Rain Crow hollering, must be gonna rain." My husband told them it was a dove, even showed them the dove on the electric line, and told them to watch it calling and they could tell. Well, even that never convinced them, to them it was a Rain Crow, guess it always will be.
Be it Doves or Rain Crows, they are Blessings.
