The Nest

2 years ago I made a post describing that a dove had built a nest right outside of the front door. The story ended tragically just under a month later as mama hatched a chick and then was summarily eaten by Mesa. The chick died the next day. This year the nest is occupied again by another dove. A week or so ago 2 eggs hatched. We have been watching the progress of the family. The babies have grown rapidly and are probably getting ready to fledge. I think mama wants them to GTFO because there is hardly any space to move in the nest. It's pretty comical to see all 3 of them crammed into that little nest. Hopefully they'll safely fly away and not end up as cat or dog food.
