Also, some doves have moved in. My back porch has window/rail boxes with flowers in them. The doves in the area have been popping by, roosting for a bit and then taking off again. I thought it was sweet.
I guess they were house hunting because they've moved into the end unit. Momma dove has been plunked in place for the last hour and a half while Poppa dove has been bringing over nesting materials.
Half of me is so giddy at having birds. The other half, the half not influenced by having a preschool-teaching mom, is annoyed that I will likely not be able to sit on my porch so I don't disturb the eggs. According to several web sites I poked my cursor into, doves lay two eggs, two days apart and the take 14 days to hatch. Then another several weeks until they fly away.
