Nest update

We haven't seen the dove chicks since we discovered they'd hatched on Saturday morning. Tonight I took a chance and lifted the hanging basket down from the hook - and Papa dove didn't budge. I sat the basket on a small table on the veranda and took 3 photos before putting it back on the hook. He stared me straight in the eye but didn't give me even a peek of the babies. Here are two of the shots of him on the nest.

  1. Can you imagine what poor Papa dove must have been thinking? "Stay calm now..stay calm. Look 'em in the eye. "
