Thought you might enjoy a picture of the dove that has nested in our atrium and her two babies who hatched yesterday. It’s been amazing watching them through feedings and activity. The mom and dad dove switch off taking care of them. What a miracle to see so close up.

Mourning doves are truly special birds. Lousy nest builders, yes, but also very special birds. That’s why everyone works overtime to try and protect them when they find doves nesting in their yards. This is a beautiful picture. /Gary
