Baby Mourning Doves

The Babies Eating Bird Seed
Earlier this month, I woke up to an exciting surprise.

Two baby mourning doves were peaking in my window.

I wondered if the parents, who like to roost on my fire escape, had dropped them off. : )

It was such a happy moment. How wonderful that the mourning dove I had followed through her single life, into finding a mate, had now hatched two offspring.

I hope she's happy...and I imagine that she's now setting on a new nest of eggs. They do that. It turns out that mourning doves are one of the most prolific birds in the United States.

I love it when good things are abundant.
