    Last year I found a dove nesting outside my back door. She had 2 babies... one of them ended up dying and then she got killed by something in my front yard. The other baby survived and was old enough to go out on its own.

    This year, I have another one nested out there and I'm hoping it goes better for this family than the last one. Took these pics this morning...

    I have a little poem for this post I learned when I was a kid.

    Little birdie in the snow
    With a broken wing, it hurts I know
    I fed it some crumbs of bread then I squashed it's focking head.

    Congrats Cheryl, nice to listen to them in the early morning and evening.

    Last pair we had nested in our brick vine but their baby was killed in a hailstorm. They hung around the next year in our neighbors back tree.

    Have doves here too...

    We have "Mourning Doves" here..they have a uniquie call....it sounds like a female moaning during sex...starts off low and slow,then increases in intensity,then the "orgasm"...then 3 coo's that sound like extreme pleasure and exhaustion combined!....they can sound pretty cool,or drive you insane,depening on your frame of mind...:rolleyes:

    "whhooooooooooUUUUUUUoooooo....Whoooo....hoooooo....hoooo!"..
    We used to have nests in our yard,but since so many feral cats reside here,not many nest in my yard anymore,but I still hear them coo-ing in nearby trees..

    Singer Suzy Bogguss asked me what kind of birds they were,when I was talking to her after an outdoor concert a few years ago,and two of them were in a nearby tree cooing away!.....she said she heard the exact same noises at her hotel room the night before,but she thought it might have been a couple getting "romantic" in the next room over,or out on the balcony !!..either that or an owl was nesting outside!...I guess she never saw one in Illinois where she came from....or should I say "heard" one before!...:crazy:

    When I was at Navy Boot Camp in San Diego back in '88, there were always hundreds of Seagulls hanging out around outside the galley. The funny thing was is that we always knew when we were having chicken for dinner...there were no Seagulls around at all, made us wonder if it was really chicken we were eating.
