I have a pair of Mourning Doves that nest in my climbing Hydrangea every year. It's climbing on my fireplace chimney, and this year it sounds like they're nesting IN my chimney. Their sound is louder IN my house than outside. No fires in my fireplace from now until fall!


When I first heard them I thought they were owls or Whippoorwills. I'm surprised such a little bird could have such a big voice.

I live in a small, quiet gated community on a lake & canal, but in the city. We have leash laws for dogs & cats, so they must think they're in the wild with no predators. They sit on my roof, they bathe in my waterfalls & pond in my front yard, in the lake in my back yard, and apparently feel very safe here. I enjoy their sounds all day long and hope to see their babies this year.
