The "bad", after 10 inches of heavy wet snow. They WERE beautiful!!!
For weeks we've been watching a dove nest, then a chick, right over the front porch, watching it from in the living room. this morning -- uuhhhh, those white things?? not snow, not all dandelions - this is the "Ugly" ..... feathers. ...not a good sign.
Another not good sign - this is the fledgling - looking for cover?
More of the "Ugly" ... in the end, the chick disappeared. 8-( Everyone's gotta eat. 8-(
