Do Birds Blink?

I shot this today while visiting my parents.  We took a little walk around the grounds and I heard the cooing of the doves.  Found them up in the rafters and zoomed in a little  so as not to scare them.  I think these are mourning doves and I love the sound they make.  I stood there for quite a while watching them and noticed they never blinked.  Do birds blink … ever?  Namaste’



  1. Yes birds blink… very very fast… I have some photos that when processing them I have found a problem with the eye… I’ve caught them blinking… lovely photo… that camera really is good .. but it takes a good operator and that you are…
