It has been nearly a month since I last posted about the mourning dove nest with the two eggs found in my patio. James and I have been careful to not disturb the birds but have been secretly concerned in the last two weeks that we have not seen the babies as they should have hatched. The mother has been sitting on the nest for a long time, and I hoped that she’s been sitting on her hatched babies to keep them warm. Finally, with record heat over the weekend, we got to see the two babies!
Today was the first time I did not see the mother or father with their babies. I guess since it is 90 degrees out today, they don’t really need to be sitting on the baby squabs to keep them warm!
