Our mama mourning dove was showing off her baby on Sunday. I didn't want to get too close and frighten her so I used my zoom lens. It kinda looked like there were maybe two babies in the nest but when I walked around the back of the ladder......
Nope. Just one extra large darlin'.
I had asked Mr. B to have a talk with daddy bird as to his late arrivals recently to relieve mama bird of her duties. Smarty pants Mr. B said "Nope. Daddy bird is right on schedule because he is going by daylight and it is lighter a little later each day!"
"I want to sing like the birds sing
not worrying about who hears
or what they think."
