While we were getting the gardens ready for spring, I discovered squatters had moved into Mrs. B.'s craft shed:

Brought her kid, too...

"How long is this going to take?" she asked.

"You don't want to know."

Mourning doves. Pigeons would have been evicted by now.

Last summer, a dove showed up in the back yard, seemingly unwilling or unable to fly. It found a shady spot, and I put out food and water for it. One day, it was gone. I wonder if this is it.

Sounds like a good movie!

And call the dove dumb....the nest was half made!
Maybe one day it'll save your life?

Now, there's two eggs. And Mrs. Barbarian thought she'd just redecorate the nursery, while Gwen was off on a break...

She seems pleased.

I'm surprised she stuck around.
I try to stay away from nests in my garden because the motherbird will get scared and disappear.
There was a nest once under my patio covering. I had to wait till the birds flew away to get it ready for summer.

She seems pretty chill around us. I was repairing the steps to the shed, and she didn't seem to mind. As long as I don't stare at her, or move too quickly, she seems O.K. with it. Maybe she is the same dove from last summer, and got to be a little more comfortable around me.
