Mourning Dove update - we have 2 chicks!

We were anticipating that the two mourning dove chicks should have hatched around last Thursday (April 2). We were also very concerned about the snow and cold weather we've been having this week - we wondered if the chicks had hatched and, if they had, would they survive.
Well, they have! Here's a photo I took a few minutes ago of suppertime on the nest. The adult is feeding both chicks "crop milk". Hopefully I will be able to get better shots over the next couple of days.


  1. That is so sweet. Beautiful picture!

  2. Hooray!! I am so glad to see they have survived. Mamma looks so proud!

  3. More nice posts. I do love your feline birdwatcher!
