Mourning Becomes a Nest

Dear Kid,

Over the weekend, the Puppy and I did some gardening. To clarify, I did some gardening and the Puppy napped on the grass. It was (in his opinion) a fair division of labor.

baby birds leaving the nest, a lot like the summer before collegeWhile he was napping, a Mourning Dove was building a nest in one of the evergreens.

In case you are ever reincarnated as a Mourning dove, you might want to know the proper methodology for next building.

One: Fly off and find Useful Material for nest building.

Two: Fly back. Land on the driveway.

Three: Holding the Useful Material in your beak, scan the area for predators, marauders, and other birds looking for interior decorating ideas.

Four: Once you’re satisfied that no one is observing, fly up to the Right Branch and begin construction.

Rinse and repeat.

I just loved watching this bird check to be sure no one saw where the next was being built. Mourning Dove in Stealth Mode.

Now I have to think about what to buy as a nest warming gift. Any ideas?

Love, Mom
