I'm Going to Be a Grandmother Again!

Some of you may remember last spring when we were visited by a family of robins, watching the mom and dad make the nest, lay the eggs and watching the fledglings grow was a highlight of the year for us.

Well, this year, we have another family of birds visiting, morning doves! Actually, they stick around most of the winter but now a pair have made a nest in our rain gutters and we spotted an egg in there this morning. Unfortunately, I haven't seen the mother this morning, so I'm hoping all the recent bad weather didn't scare her off ... fingers crossed.

Mazel tov!!

My cousin had mourning doves nesting in her patio - the hatchlings were so cute! Hope the mom comes back to keep the egg warm. :)

sandrac:

Very nice -- while I loath most birds, I actually like robins. Congrats!

Read the intro to this post on Twitter first thing in the morning. I wondered why you seemed so calm about this, then focused one the word "again" and wondered. Once I saw the egg, the aha entered my brain. Hope the mom didn't get scared away.
