Greetings Hellions! So the doves who built their second nest on my patio are officially parents again! Over the last few weeks, the mother of the pair seemed to have gotten use to me coming outside to water the plants, fill her water dish, and refresh her bowl of seeds.
However, today I caught sight of something under her wing and managed to get a peek at one of her chicks. I'm pretty sure the second one is on the other side of her, but is hidden by the rose bush on the other side fo the wall.
With how large the chicks are already, I'm sure they'll be flying and leaving the nest soon. But until then they are welcome to share my little oasis in the desert.
