I posted here about the doves who have been nesting in my back porch every spring for the last few years. I had never seen any chicks in the past but this year, there are two chicks in the nest. I’m very excited because I had felt so sorry for the doves building the nest, returning each year but never hatching any young ones. It’s been difficult to get a decent photo as the nest is in a really awkward spot.
This is the best photo I could get of mother dove with the chicks. I spied one of the chicks running along the porch with a parent at the other end either encouraging it or trying to get it back into the nest. They both look very healthy & it shouldn’t be long before they all take off. Abby is fascinated by the nest & its occupants but she can only watch, she can’t get anywhere near them.
