Doves in my Fan Palm tree (40 miles north of Tampa, FL) and only 5 feet up from the ground

by Gil.
(Spring Hill, Florida)

The 2 babies just left the nest yesterday morning (Sept.

12) They did some short distance flying and settled under some shrubs about 12 feet from where their nest is. Their coloring makes it almost impossible to see them when they were in the nest or now under the shrubs resting on wood chips. Fun to watch the changes from eggs to flyers.
