Mourning Dove Nest




Hello and Happy Easter! No Easter eggs here, just a couple of Mourning Dove eggs. Last weekend I mentioned a Mourning Dove pair cooing to each other on the roof of the house. This week my husband noticed they built a nest right by my front door in one of my potted plants (the plant is not alive, but that's a different story). I'm really excited to have a close-up view of this natural event. Although, on Friday evening I was a little concerned because we received a pretty good hail storm and the mama Mourning Dove was being hit with hail. I was afraid she would fly off, but she didn't. She sat there and kept her eggs safe and warm.

I hope you had a wonderful Easter. I'll share more pictures when the chicks hatch. Thanks for stopping by!


On a totally different subject.... is anyone else having problems uploading pictures to blogger???
