Description

This was taken just after I witnessed the father bird feeding his two hatchlings who hatched a week ago. The nest is on our back patio which we can see through our sliding door, in a plant pot about 5.5. feet high.

    Have you done anything to keep out bully birds. I want to help mourning doves and other small birds in my area. Crows are the problem

  • Tina says:

    There have been crows nearby but I think because this nest is so close to our house they haven’t come near. One day we had to scare off a group of 10+ in the yard just by clapping at them.
