Reproduction in the non-Arthropods #2





















The mourning doves have embraced our yard once again as prime nesting and fledging territory. I walked out the door to find this young one perched on the old dead waxflower trunk that remains in the yard as a decorative element and, well, a place for birds to perch. This little guy was so darned cute I almost fell off the porch.

You're darned tooting this baby is so ugly cute! We have mourning doves in the valley behind us and they add such a lot to the atmosphere of the place. Not sure where they are nesting but they forage here a lot. This time of year I have to put my fingers in my ears and close my eyes and go lalalalala while the crows and ravens go looking for their spring time juicy snacks - and instead focus on the success stories!
