A Beautiful Villain
I have yet to hear anyone say anything positive about White-winged Doves. These migrants from the south descend on us in late April and everyone begins muttering through gritted teeth about them. The problem is, despite their beautiful looks, they are total thugs. Monopolising feeders and beating up on any other birds that try to come near. Luckily for us all, by September they will move on again and peace will return to the area.
