My Precious Doves!!

by Nina

Hi I have a pair of morning doves that have come back to nest in my hanging baskets for the past three years. They have four broods each year so far and babies stick around so lots of doves for us to enjoy. This year is the first year they have allowed me to touch her without being afraid. She makes a very different coo at me and talks to me when I am near. I am able to take the hanging basket down to water and take pictures without disturbing her now. I feel it is my little taste of heaven on earth and soooo look forward to them coming back each year for us to enjoy! Got to love my dove families!!!!!
