Baby Doves vs. Fresh Flowers


Last month we took down a hanging planter intending to refresh it for Spring with new flowers. We were surprised to find an egg. No nest, just sitting in the planter. Soon a Mourning Dove was seen guarding her new territory. She has been sitting there through every type of storm, calmly waiting it out. We just noticed she seemed to be sitting higher and got out the camera…this is what we found! That was a great trade-off for some fresh flowers.
