Doves in my flower basket .

by Ramona
(West Palm Beach FL.)

I notice about three weeks ago, that two doves were on my palm tree out in my back yard.


They have a nest in my orchids.I watched them out my window every day.

I came home the other day, and they and the babies were gone.

I want to know how long do the babies stay with mom and dad before they go out on there own? I still look for them, I guess I miss watching them.RM in FLA.

Doves in my hanging flower basket
by: Tory

I too have doves in my flower basket. For about 2 weeks, I though she was alone and then yesteray, I saw another dove perched next to her (or him). I don't go too close so I can't tell if there are eggs. I have to water my other plants which doesn't appear to bother them. Of course, the flowers in the planter they inhabit are wilted. But, as long as the doves are happy, that's okay. How long before they have babies? I always thought I'd see little chirping heads.

Baby doves leaving parents
by: Anonymous

I had my first seasonal litter of doves three weeks ago and they left the nest at about 10 days. They still come back to visit ( I can tell its them by the size and they still visit momma.)
By the way, the momma dove has already started nesting again (in the same nest).They have usually three sets of babies a season, always using the same nest. Hope you see them again. They love the same territory they were brought up in.
Good luck,
Mavmacaw
