Mourning dove nesting in my hanging basket
I hang two flower baskets by my front door every year. This year, the very day after I hung these I saw the beginnings of a nest. I left it be. A bird would be way cooler than some annual flowers. Sure enough, within a few days I saw a mourning dove sitting on there. So our front door is off limits for awhile. Mama bird has a good spot. The overhang is protecting her from the rain right now. She’s out of reach of pretty much any predators. I have lots of pine trees in my yard and they have nested there many times. This is a first for the flower pot. Very cool indeed.
