Dove Nest

I noticed a dove flying from our little Hawthorn tree each time I went to the vegetable garden during the weekend.  Apparently while we were gone, some love birds set up housekeeping in the Hawthorn.  This nest is barely above my head.



Looking forward to some little doves.  I will try to not stress out the parents too much, but they're right above the peas which are producing right now.

  2. How sweet! We have a pair -- have had for years and it is fun to see the little ones (usually just two) . . . is it raining there? We're getting a nice shower which is perfect for I planted some annuals and perennials and a shrub!

  3. It's neat that you will be able to conveniently check up on any baby doves in the nest.

  4. We had a dove nest in a tree right close to the living room and it was a treat to watch the little ones grow up until they left the nest.

  5. We had a pair on our deck who built a nest on a corner table. When we went out they would fly off but never too far, and we had the joy of watching the babies hatch and grow. I wouldn't worry too much about disturbing them.

  8. GonSS, a Robin decided to nest right above my front door. A very nice looking nest was built there but the door activity most have driven the mama to another location as I only saw her sitting in the nest one day and then nothing. I suspect she decided to raise her family some where else. It's too bad the work for the nest was all for naught. I may just leave it there for a decoration.

    Have a great bird watching day.

  9. It always amazes me that doves are able to successfully raise young - their nests are so rickety. I'm looking forward to hearing about the progress you get to observe!

    1. When I showed my husband the nest, he realized that it is made out of dried Russian Sage from last year. Should smell good I guess. Their nests sure don't look very comfy.

  10. I have never seen a dove's nest before. That may be what I have out in my pear tree as I had never seen one made like that before.

  11. Dev and Cami found a kildeer nest with 4 eggs in it. .The mama was bothered by me each time I walked by her nest this morning. .and I was finally able to relocate the nest myself. .to see that the four little eggs were still there. .I can't WAIT until they hatch. .and hope that we will be able to watch the babies for a while!!

    1. I remember looking for killdeer nests in our pasture back home. I hope you get to see the little ones. Our dove still has two eggs.
