So what do you do when a dove couple decides to set up camp in a pot by your front door? About a month ago DH noticed that a pot was starting to get twigs and sticks in it! Sure enough a mourning dove couple were building a nest! I was thrilled, the family, not so much! We know at least one egg was laid, and DH said last weekend, when they were changing shifts!, he spotted a baby!
Here are a few pics:
Here is a sign we put up to discourage people from coming to the front porch:
There has been a crow hanging around, though. I think I have enough chimes and feeders hanging where he can't get to them, but am keeping watch anyways!
Have a great day,
update: our little friend is getting so big! Mom is even leaving him alone!
