A Belated Mother's Day

A couple of weeks ago I noticed that whenever I went out the front door, a dove would come exploding out of a bush growing right outside the door. Kitty hinted that there may be a nest in there since she had also noticed the exploding dove. I gave the bush a visual exam and found a small nest with 2 eggs in it. While it's nice for us to have wildlife right outside of our front door, Momma could have picked a better location since she's literally 3 feet from where we enter and exit the house. We try not to disturb her too much, but then again, it's OUR house so she'll just have to endure the intrusion. I figure the eggs have been there for about 15 days now, so maybe we'll have little dove chicks in another week or so. PICS!
