Dad's nest time


Dad gets a little time with the new chick in the nest while mom goes on the food run. This was a shot right out of our window this time last year. We watched the mom with her to new little chicks. The other one did not survive until this shot. I am sorry to say, this chick didn't make it either. It's a cruel world out there.

Beautiful photo, but sad story. But yes, it is a cruel world out there. Perhaps that's why mourning doves have that fluted cry...

This is almost a funny photo. I like it very much. Give yourself a blue ribbon for this shot.
