Birding in Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens: Lemon Doves in the Dell

Lemon Dove Kirstenbosch

Lemon Dove in the Dell area of Kirstenbosch

I popped into Kirstenbosch yesterday for a quick walk and was amazed at how confiding two Lemon Doves were in the Dell. The pair kept very close to one another, but on the occasion when they separated one bird would stop foraging and start calling its low hoot until its mate reappeared. Keep an eye out for them.
