Two birds,one nest

by Val
(Canada)

We had a robin build a nest and lay two blue eggs. She was pushed out by a mourning dove who also laid one white egg in the nest. At first they both sat on the eggs but now the mourning dove won't let the robin on. She just sits close by. Will all hatch and will they both get fed?

Mourning couple built a nest in our patio and got two eggs the next two days. It was then became hatchlings, nestlings, and fledglings. The fledglings just started flying on their own but still staying in our patio with so much of their poops. I decided to clean the place, trying not to disturbed them but they flew away. I removed the nest they built thinking that they are big enough to fly and I will plant flowers on it too. I saw the parents and the two baby birds were backed to our place but the nest was gone already. They are no longer in our patio now which made me and my son sad... but I told my son that they can't be with us forever.

Well the morning dove egg hatched grew and has since flown the nest! Unfortunately the other morning dove egg and one robins egg did not hatch. The mother robin who stayed close by is now building another nest in a new location and so life goes on.

A week has passed and the morning doves are still in charge. The robin stays close by. We are still waiting for the eggs to hatch.

    It is grey with a long beak and a white ring around it's neck. The bird is about the size of a dove and I live in Florida near the Georgia line.
