    We've had an abundance of birds nesting on our house this year! Two on the east side, and two on the west side. The kids and I were SO tickled to watch the mommies flying and getting worms, feeding babies, babies learning to fly, etc. Well, this fourth and latest mama is a Dove, and she made her next really, really low to the ground - in our 1st FLOOR windowsill. :( Some creature (I hope it was NOT our dogs) got in the nest and 1 egg is now gone out of two).

    The 2nd egg has a puncture which I assume means its dead. Right? Sadly, she is still sitting on the nest. I feel so sorry for her. :wah:

    We had a dove family make a nest each year in a plant by the front door. I was able to actually water the plant while mama was sitting on the nest! We watched the babies grow one year - 3 of them - then we came home from shopping and there were a bunch of crows eating the babies. :( It broke my heart.
