Baby Mourning Dove

For the past 4 years, I've had baby mourning doves hatch in our home gutters. They make a huge mess but they still bring smiles to our faces. Check out my new addition!

Well hello baby!

I didn't know what bird that was when I saw the first photo - the babies look so different! Beautiful and you are funny as usual - you make me laugh ;-)

He sure doesn't have that "never a feather out of place" look of his parents. Hope you can get some pictures when he is out of the nest. So cute!!

Those are so cute! We have doves, but I never see them with babies. What do they do when the gutters fill with water??
