Description

I wasn’t able to see inside the nest for a couple of visits because the parents were so protective and stayed on the nest, but now I don’t have to check it anymore!

    Wow so cute!

  2. Owls3.0 says:

    Do you think that the chick looks old enough to fledge? I’ve seen Mourning Dove fledglings before (even held one) and he/she doesn’t look quite old enough to me.

  3. Micah Grove says:

    Yeah he/she looks a little young but Im not worried.

  4. Texas Bird Family says:

    The fledgling does look younger ten the ones I’ve seen. even the ones that I saw in a nest looked older.

  5. Ava Johnson says:

    If it can hop, walk, or fly it will be fine. It looks fully feathered to me so I think it’s old enough.
