Nest update - when the heck did that happen?!

When I came home from work this evening the hanging basket was birdless so I wondered if the Mourning Doves had given up on that location. Around 7pm I lifted the flower basket down and found the beginnings of a nest - a few twigs and a bit of grass patted down in a circular pattern neatly tucked in between the two ivy geranium plants. About 45 minutes later I decided to take a photo of the nest for my records. Lo and behold, when I lifted the basket down again......
Stay tuned.


  1. Oh, that is so precious! I can't wait to see the baby!

  2. Another nest for doves? They really like your yard! Can't wait to read about this brood.

  3. Oh another nest!!! I can't wait for the updates Elaine Dale. The doves must love your house and be drawn to it I think. They know a very nice lady lives there me thinks :)

  5. Why is there nobody sitting on it?
