Dove Family

My sister-in-law Gigi sent me this photo today. Mum made a nest in a plant-pot outside her balcony window.

  4. Hi Denise, Gigi's photos is sweet. We have pair that nest on a window sill over our front door. One of them showed up yesterday to check it out for nesting for this year. This morning we had about 8 inches of fresh snow, drat! The doves won't be nesting here yet.

  6. Aaah that is so sweet! Sadly mourning doves have the IQ of a flower pot, and do not sense danger...I hope your sister-in-law can keep them safe.

  7. That is so cute! There is no limit to where a bird will build a nest! We had one silly bird try to build in our porch light, every day we would tear it out and the next day, there it was again!

  11. This photo is so sweet.The flower pot made a really good nesting place.
    The oddest nest I have come across was built by a robin,in one of Johns gardening boots,which he kept in the shed.

  12. Well that's one plant that's going to have to survive without watering for a week or two.
