What fun that you get to watch Mrs. Dove have babies, Dilly! We think the leaves on the tree are her umbrella! We think she'll be fine - don't worry!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

I've watched them swaying back and forth in the nest in the trees in high winds....doesn't seem to faze them at all.... or sitting on a branch that is waving all over the place too.... no problem for them... they do indeed hang on....

Ellie Creek Ellis said...

thoughtful for you to want to provide an umbrella...but mommy birds do a fine job with their wing feathers!

i wonder how long until the eggs hatch?

Well spotted Dilly!
Mummy Dove is leaving late to have her birdlings so really do hope the weather improves.

Gentle tickes

PS - Forgot to say...
Please say Thank-you to Mummy for me, for her kitty advise - no little ones yet.

Dilly Girl!

You are like STella ~ she LOVES birds, especially baby birds, and thinks they're really cute!

I think the baby birds like the wind... like it's a carnival ride up in the tree. Maggie & Mitch are right. I think the tree leaves are their own special umbrella.

Keep us updated on Mrs. Dove and her babies, please!

Goober love & smooches for the baby birds,
