New Backyard Friends # 1


Mr and Mrs Morning Dove, have taken up residence in this plant on our patio. It is very easy to take pictures right from my back door! I had a family a few years ago, but lost all the photos, when my computor died. They were awesome, so am hoping these will be as well. Mrs Dove has been staying in the nest since April 2nd, so I am assuming that is when she laid her first egg. Hopefully thing will go well, and I will be able to post more pics! The last pic shows both Mr and Mrs!

Mourning doves and wrens are my favorite birds, mainly because I love their songs. Aren't they beautiful?!!! I love listening to the doves! Lucky you, keep the pics coming!

How exciting they set up house at such a good watching location. I look forward to seeing the wee ones.

Great pics of the doves! I love their blue "eye liner" around their eyes!
It will be fun to see the chicks in a few weeks!
I hope the papa is good about finding food for her as she sits on her nest!
They must have approved of all of Ralph's re-landscaping! :)
