I've heard that doves come back to their nests every year. And I'm thinking a few doves must have been born in the neighborhood, cuz I hear the cooing alot. So, I shouldn't be surprized that a dove has made her nest in the wagon wheel light fixture on my back porch, directly in front of my door. It's not so convenient for me, I feel like I shouldn't open the back door and scare her away from her task. On the plus, I'm going to get to see the babies up close.
Does anyone know a dove's gestation period?
I've named her Lovey.
Update: Thanks to a fellow surfer, I've found some info. Apparently I'll have a couple baby doves the first week of May.
