We were greeted with a surprise one Sunday morning. Overnight, a Morning Dove made her nest and laid 2 eggs literally right next to our back door, which we use a lot. We've had a lot of fun watching her and developing a mutual relationship with her. We can get within a foot and she won't budge. Three weeks later, we finally got to meet her two little ones.
The chick on the left has his/her momma's temperament, but the one on the right was all puffed up and doesn't like us too close.
They are now too big to fit under her. We put a pizza box under them to catch their mess...which wasn't a problem till the little ones arrived. The plight of all mothers.
