Thanks again! I sure hope they make it-I'm in a woodsy area,so I'm praying raccoons or
snakes don't find them...

Great clip Birgit!!

All birds will sit for ages on their eggs, turning them, moving them so they get equal heat etc.

We had a pair of doves that came to live with us and nested in the garage, we lost them in the bushfires in 2009, I was heartbroken when they were gone. I have some pictures on my other laptop and they come up every so often in my screen saver

Peace and long life - Jules

Please let us know if any doves hatch. You can look up the incubation period for doves online. emoticon
Here is a fund video-clip you might enjoy watching:

We own ducks two of whom are nesting currently. I assume some of the basics I've learned would apply to doves as well.
The first few days of incubating the eggs the females may not leave the nest at all as the embryos are very sensitive to temperature changes. Birds, like people, can survive fasting longer than you would think and they are programmed to eat more before setting. Females are also very reluctant to leave the nest while anyone is around because if they have to return while there is traffic there nest could be discovered (and the eggs eaten). So they are likely to leave briefly just after sunrise or at any time nobody is around. Later in the process they may leave the nest for longer periods with no harm to the eggs.
The less the female is disturbed on her nest the higher the chance that some babies will hatch.

Many birds fast while they sit on the nest. Many other birds swap off with the other parent. Many doves both sexs look alike.

Objects in the mirror will get thinner than they now appear

I know this is a dog & cat lovers team,but I have a bird question...I have an overgrown bush
by my front door.I've noticed that I have a dove (nesting)? there. I'm worried about the poor
thing-I've never seen it leave for food or water-either day or night. Is it OK?
