New baby doves

The Mourning Dove that has been nesting outside our window had her babies last night -- it looks like two little ones. They finally poked their head out about 5:30 pm and mommy started feed them shortly after that. It's exciting to have a new family in the neighborhood. They look amazingly large. No wonder mom took so long to hatch them.

A shot of mom just before the babies came out is on my other blog, PixelEyed.

What a special moment you've captured here, much like Sullivan's chaos--fleeting and worthy. Thanks.

Steve ~~ that is the most amazing photo. The color, the texture in the tree and nest, and the softness of the Dove ~~
Just wonderful :)

You should export these babies to some countries where there are more hawks than doves !
