Last night, I noticed a Mourning Dove nesting on the pillar of our porch. It was amazing how she sat perfectly still on her nest. I wondered at the time if there were any eggs, but I didn't get close enough to check.This morning, when we went to check, we noticed her baby with her! So sweet! After some research, we have decided that the baby must be a few days old. Her feathers are to thick for her to be brand new.
We spend a fair amount of time on this porch, so I am shocked that this sweet bird was up there with her egg for so long unnoticed! It will be fun to watch the baby grow!
