Morning Dove nesting in our planter
Morning Dove made a nest in one of our hanging plants at our back deck. She laid two eggs shortly after. After a couple of weeks only one egg hatched. It only took two weeks after that the the baby dove left the nest but stuck close by. The growth rate is very fast as Doves only live about one and a half years. Father sits on the eggs during the day and takes of the little one during the day. Mother looks after the young one at night.
