baby bird love

The eggs have hatched!
...
I have been peeking and snapping images here and there, feeling a bit like a dove paparazzi...being so careful not to frighten them.
...
Looks like two healthy new squabs...maybe three, the mama sits on them often and it is difficult to distinguish between the feathers, beaks and heads.
...
They are wonderful, beautiful and delicate, they blink their tiny eyes into the sun and sleep snuggled tightly together.
...
Today the hanging basket they are nesting in was swaying softly in the breeze, I think they picked the perfect home.

Ooh so cute! We have some nesting under our grape arbour and I had to snap some shots and take some video of them. Too adorable. I love that doves are monogamous and that the daddy dove helps out the mommy dove so much. xo

It just amazing to witness something like that. We used to have some birds nesting under our deck in CT, seeing the babies was just beautiful. :0)
