Eggs in the Nest
She has eggs! Look hard - those light areas in the center are the eggs - but I can't get close enough to count them. We noticed them 6 days ago, but she sticks on that nest, virtually 24-7! Sometimes I look in and can barely see – her soft plumage melts into the foliage.
The blue jays are always around, and blue jays are baby-bird killers. I’ve seen them flying with little bodies in their beaks, so we want to watch closely when the doves hatch. Hope our watchfulness will help them raise this brood.
