New nesting neighbors

Knock, knock, anyone home?

Jeff noticed our newest neighbors this weekend while he was out enjoying the morning on the back sunporch. A sweet pair of mourning doves is building a nest in the shady nook formed by the L of the porch and the dining room. The tree they have selected is just feet from the large dining room picture window and the screened porch windows, so we have a great viewing spot from which to observe their progress. I'm only sorry we'll be away when they lay eggs and hatch their young. Perhaps if we are good landlords, they will stay on for another season!
