Together on the backyard fence, four pretty doves. Don’t usually see so many — must be parents and a late brood. Sunlight startlingly bright today but wind equally startlingly cold. Also, not as much warmth from the sunlight as in the past few days. At the river today, first leaves spiraling into the water. Note to doves: once the trees are bare, do not hang out on that fence. Pip the redtail hawk uses it as a dining table.
