A gray and brown "Mourning"

I saw these mourning doves out on the deck and they were so calm they let me poke my camera out the patio door to snap a few photos without startling. I've never paid attention to the difference between the males and females, but having these two so close together I can see the Mister has gray on his head with a pinkish tinge to his breast while the Missus is a beautiful soft brown.

Mr. Dove
Mrs. Dove
Look at his lovely blue eyelids.
She's watching me.
