I was truly amazed to watch his dedication to them. They remained very still and quiet while they were alone and chatted only when he called to them. As soon as he left they settled down and not a sound or movement came from them. I am happy that they survived the loss of momma but glad that they had such a perfect dad to nurture them. I was sad to see them leave today. Mrs Mourning Dove is still nesting and it may be any day now that her 2 eggs will hatch. Nature can be cruel and hard sometimes, but this was an event with drama that turned out nice. It has been nice having you all follow this event...stay tuned for the next one!
