This is the third family this summer for my little doves. My poor Fuchsia plant isn’t faring too well but  my husband and I are enjoying our grand birdies instead.

Lucky for your poor Fuchsia that mourning doves usually only nest 2-3 times a year. This should be the last nest full of chicks until next year. At least that’s what it says here in the book. Tell your Fuchsia to dwell on that thought! /Gary
