They're Back!

Last summer, I was extremely lucky to have a family of Mourning Doves nest above my doorway. They had two clutches last summer.




Lately I've been noticing some possible clues that they were back. Twigs and grass are left right outside my front door. The other day there was a long piece of green vegetation hanging right down in front of my door. They had cleaned it up a few hours later. Then I would start to hear them chirping away early in the morning. I took this photo today from the inside of my house. This nest is especially special because I can watch them from inside my house!

What fabulous guests! And they clean up after themselves, which is wonderful. Congratulations on the return of your doves.
