About This Image

My Favorite Dove (Mourning Dove), or her mate, (I am not sure which), took a break and flew off the nest revealing a single egg. I took the opportunity to snap a picture.

Assuming everything follows the natural course, there should be a second egg arriving soon, then a 14 day incubation period.

Great Picture hope you get the baby birds when they hatch. Carol

thanks for sharing this, Alex, am hoping we'll get to see the babies as time progresses.

That nest looks similar to those of the TX mourning doves, although they use twigs instead of pine needles, and the construction is rather flimsy.
