They're back!

If you've been following my blog for awhile you will remember our nesting Mourning Doves from last summer. Well, it looks like they're back! Yesterday morning Geoff called me at the office to tell me that the two doves were above our front door and they were assembling twigs (moving in....). Last year they raised 3 pairs of chicks in two locations, the one above our front door and also in one of our hanging baskets.

Today they were busy on the walkway near our feeders. I think the male was strutting his stuff - well, flashing his tail feathers

and puffing himself up, probably as part of his "look at me" promotion. So while, they haven't actually taken up residence yet, I suspect they will once the weather is a little warmer.
Stay tuned!
