Flew the coop

Oh well. I returned home this evening and found that Ms. Mourning Dove and her eggs are gone. Again. I read that it's not uncommon for Mourning Doves to abandon their nests. Still it makes me sad. I was hoping to see little Mourning Dove chicks. I really hope she chooses a more secluded location for her nest next time.

  1. Oh, doves are the loser nest builders of the bird world. :-P. My mom had a nest in her tree that seriously looked like five or six twigs arranged in the crook of a branch. It is a wonder that the species doesn't die out.
