Chicks Aid Society??

Sad to report that our Mourning Dove Nest appears to have been abandoned today. One parent was there briefly this morning but the nest has been bare ever since. I'll know by mid-week whether the eggs are viable, they're due to hatch around Wednesday.

Maybe they heard about me rustling a bat out of the house first thing this morning and were concerned they'd be evicted as well. I wouldn't recommend bat catching as a way to start a morning. TGIF.


  1. That's too bad about the abandoned eggs. Nature can be so harsh sometimes. How does one rustle bats out of ones house?

  2. Check your email, Corner Brook Cousin. It seems to involve banishment of males.

    This is why I am glad never to have found any nests.
