March #SOL22 Day 15 – Springtime Nest Building

We have a pair of doves that we often see in our yard. This morning I noticed they were building a nest under the porch of our work shed.

Later in the day, I went back to see how they were progressing. Sadly, they were nowhere to be found.

And the remnants of their nesting attempt were on the ground under the spot.

I took the chance and did something I wished I could have done this morning as I watched them struggle. I added another wall for their home. I hope I didn’t add too much human scent. Maybe they can try again tomorrow.

In other news today, we are prepping our house for painting the outside. It’s a big job.

  1. You took a liking to birds better than I have. When we built our new house, we literally requested no shutters since I had had it with birds nesting behind the shutters outside of my home office.

    Good luck with the painting!

  2. Denise, you are such a caregiver. Ken would have my hide if I invited dives to build a nest on our home. He has specific opinions about every type of bird. Looks as though you have your work cut out for you w/ prep for painting.

  3. Denise, I adore that very first photo, where you can see the dove settled so sweetly in the wood framing. I do love doves. I hope they come back! Happy painting – what a big project!
