Mrs Dove had a nest in the tree right next to our driveway and one day a baby flew out and landed on a barrel so I ran out and took a (zoomed in) photo.
The baby barely had her eyes open.
Then she found Mama and followed her around and got fed a few times.
When Mama wasn't around, the baby hid in the bushes until she came back.
Then Papa joined the family and helped shepherd the baby around and fed her also.
The baby grew so fast that a week later I can't recognize which one is the baby
Mama is back on her nest getting ready for another family.
We were watching again:
He brought her a stick and she rearranged it on the nest.
She is very patiently sitting on her egg(s) as the process starts all over again.
Isn't nature grand?!
Happy Animal Wednesday everyone.
