Can't figure out which bird this is???


(HD, NV)

Me and my husband have been working on our backyard for the past two weeks. We been noticing these birds that have been moving in and the other day when we went back out to continue they had build a tiny nest on top of our gazebo and laid two eggs. We can't figure out what type of birds they are. Anyone have an idea?? Also we want to know so we know how long they will take to hatch because we actually have to work on our gazebo next. We are afraid of moving them. Please thank you!!


Answer
That is a beautiful photo of a mourning dove. You can learn more about them here. You may have to wait a few weeks before the eggs are hatched and the nestlings are ready to leave their nest.
Happy Birding!
