We first saw this mourning dove on its nest in the tree just off the deck last Saturday so we don’t know how long it has been on the nest. I have learned they incubate for about two weeks, and the chicks fledge at about two weeks. It has been on the nest every time I have thought to look up there. How remarkably tolerant to allow me to photograph using a flash from about fifteen feet.
