Yesterday morning when hubby was trimming pods out of the Palm Tree, he unknowingly disturbed a Mourning Dove's nest! It floated to the ground on a branch and behold there were these two little newly hatched doves with their eyes still closed! The opening for their ears was visible as you can see in the picture and their tiny feathers were just beginning to cover their sweet little bodies. Unharmed, we quickly made a new little nest of leaves and such and placed them back in the pockets of the palm tree near the middle. All the while the mother kept careful watch from the roof of the house at first and then from an overhanging branch above. A short while later she was observed sitting on the nest.
