Wordless Wednesday


Momma bird is in full nesting mode. She let me get pretty close today because she was not going to leave her eggs. I was very slow and careful as to not give her a heart attack. She seems to be hunkered down more than she was at first. She is such a sweet momma!

BTW - can anyone tell if this is a pigeon or a dove? I can't tell!

Hope everyone is having a good week so far!~

I am not good at identifying birds...but we do have mourning doves in my area and they make a coo coo sound...

Googled them, the spots are a clear indication of a mourning dove as Wunderwoman said!

I'm glad Chef E answered that. I was wondering too! I guess those are what I have as well. You're lucky your nest is visible.

Peep Peep, I am a lonely bird with an empty nest :(

Gorgeous pic. I love nesting birds. Makes everything in life just seem to fall into place somehow.

Thanks for sharing and I'm glad I found your blog.

Happy Weekend,
