    This was so neat to discover! There are always a pair or two of doves hanging out on the utility line that runs through the back of the property and I love to hear them. Didn't know they moved in! Had to prune a monster trumpet vine on the other end but...left this one alone for now. Thought I would share.

    Sweet!
    I had a dove couple that every spring & summer for 3 years nested in a potted asparagus fern on my 2nd floor apt balcony. My roomie named the mama bird "Ferdishes" (as in "Dove for dishes") LOL
    Enjoy them & thanks for sharing that great pic!

    Would you like me to send you some of mine? They fight with the squirrels for the sunflower seeds in my way back yard. The squirrels are very angry with me right now, they haven't had any seeds since last Friday. Ooops, but my Aunt took precedence over their bellies! :wink:

    My mom had a pair that nested in a hanging plant on the front porch, you could touch mama bird and she stayed right there, I am surprised she wasn't on the nest, The male and female take turns setting, They are fun to watch!

    what a cute picture!

    I didn't know a male bird, would help with the babies?
    Maybe I should have married one of those? :wink:
