It is picture time! A nice little break from the usual. If you have been hanging out at his blog for a while, you may have experienced the birth of the first clutch of Dove family eggs. I posted the pics here and here
Well since the first we have had a second and our now waiting for our obviously frisky Dove mates, to hatch a third, yes a third nest of eggs.
They have two eggs each time. The first saw only one egg hatch. The second had two little Dove babies. Pictured below with the mother bird.
Now, the third time, two eggs, no hatching yet.
Hopefully, the doves will have two babies again, for a total of 5 babies this season.
From what I have read Mourning doves, can have 5 - 6 clutches a season. So they are half way there!
While I am on the baby subject. Check these cuties out. Baby Mallards.
Mallard mom is close by
Soon her tolerance of us has reached it's limit. She takes the entire brood of eight ducklings into the water.
Ah, sometimes one just has to take a break from the madness in the world and appreciate nature. It is a beautiful thing! Enjoy the break from the madness, please.
