I was just thinking that last year about this time, we were watching a Mourning Dove raise her babies outside our window. We watch them first poke their heads out from under her and then came home one day to find that one of them was gone. A few days later, the other went missing. Momma dove was sitting on the fence near the nest still look for her babies. The dad was perched up on the garage watching her and wishing he could make things right again.
