We have this very sweet pair of mourning doves in our yard. They nested last year in our yard. I believe some critter stole their eggs last spring because I saw eggs in the nest, but the next time I looked there were none (and no baby birds). But the pair are back now, they have built their nest, and I’m praying for the best.
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.
