Love is in the air...

Meet Helen and Morty. These two doves have decided to make a happy little home atop one of the pillars on our front porch. They coo and warble as they flit here and there gathering twigs and grass from the yard to make their nest. I am not sure how long they will stay because they are very close to the front door and are skittish whenever anyone walks through it. I hope they stay. Cross your fingers!

I went out this morning and they have already added to the nest. Maybe they are just city doves?

Look out for crows, we had a similar set of visitors a few years ago and no sooner had the eggs hatched then a crow came and killed the babies. Where was my BB-Gun when I needed it?
