One of the many White-winged Doves that summer up here from across the boarder set up housekeeping in one of out Mesquite Trees and today I saw a set of twins peeking out of their casita. They look healthy and happy to be out of those hot egg shells!!

Another beautiful bird shot! Nice looking bird. We have Mourning Doves here. I hear them more than I see them around our property.

Thanks!

luv, One of and the most abundant Dove is the Mourning Dove. The White-winged is visiting from usually below the border. They should be going home soon. Some are running a bit late.
Yesterday I ran across this nest:

And this morning while checking some Ironwood stands a Mommy White-wing pulled the Plover's trick of faking a broken wing to lure me away from the nest I never would have seen had she stayed put.

Her only chick was following orders to a T--not even a twitch other than one eye blink while I took a quick picture and let them be. At this age the chick might attempt to jump out of the nest and it can't get back in.
What's that Mr. Rattleworm? You wish I did have it jump? Not this time Buddy, go find a Packrat!!!
