We have extra points on the peaceful scale these days. Last year a robin family took up residence by our front door until the little robins were old enough to leave the nest. This year I noticed a new family had moved into the same spot. At first I assumed it was another robin, but when we peeked at the nest, the egg was white. Then we noticed the mama. We have a dove nesting by the door.
She seems perfectly content as long as we aren't banging the door all day long, which is somewhat of an "if". I do regret now not having cleaned the siding before now, since I obviously won't get the chance before the home tour since I don't want to move the nest. I can clean the other half of the front porch at least, I suppose.
Anybody know any interesting information about doves?
And don't suggest we stop going out our front door until Mama Dove moves on. That is not an option.
