A few more of my favorite photos from this breeding season of birds carrying nesting material. I monitored the Mourning Dove nest for Nest Watch.

    Great photos! How many nests did you find this year? I found 7 mockingbird nests so far and others. Still, nobody wants my nestbox. Oh well, maybe next year.

      Hi there! To answer your question, I monitored 29 nests, most of them in a park about 10 minutes away, but some of them in my yard and my neighbors’ yards. I found other nests, but they were too far away to monitor regularly.
