Dove Update: Babies Have Fledged!


Here's what we saw early this morning when we went out on the front porch to check on the nest:


An EMPTY nest!!!
Our babies have fledged the nest!  So they must have been a couple of days older than we assumed.  Those parent doves can keep those babies well hidden under themselves!

Here are a few photos of the Squabs that I took just yesterday before they left us:





We will leave the nest as is for another week in case they come back to use it, but we haven't seen the squabs all day today.  So strange seeing an empty nest again!  Looks like our Mourning Dove adventure has come to an end.
