    well the 2 babies are too big for the mom and dad to sit on the nest so I was able to get this great picture

    the story is we had a robbin make a nest in our weeping cherry tree in our front yard. After the babies left the nest a pair of morning doves took it over and layed some eggs and this is what we have so far

    That is interesting! All the mourning dove nests I have ever seen are almost flat and made with pretty big twigs. Their call is one of the things I miss most about the South.

    they look a bit crowded in there but so cute.
    the doves here make a horrid racket when landing in trees. then they do their lovely coo, coo. wonder why the noise on landings. to scare any other birds in their way out of their path?

    I have morning doves that like to sit in my backyard. I love their cooing sound.
