Nesting Season

Mid March I was showing a friend’s granddaughter a bird nest in one of my backyard trees. It was thin, weather-worn and had been there for 2 years. Looking up at the nest, you could see right through a large hole along the side.

I walked under that branch today, happened to look up at it and saw a remodeled nest. No longer riddled with holes, the nest was thick and large. A long tail stuck out over the south edge, so I ran to get my camera.

Do you see the bird's tail?

Do you see the bird’s tail?

She’s sitting there.

See her looking at the camera?

The pair of Mourning Doves have been regulars to my yard every year.  I never knew where they nested until this year.  What a blessing to have them in my yard. Can’t wait ’til the eggs hatch.
