We have a baby! Sorry about the photo quality.

Huh. The nest looks much neater, where did the hairy twigs go?

May I ask "what is it?" It looks like a bunny.

Read up a couple threads, Addie! DH is taking these from his window at work.

As I recall, doves only have one baby per nest, though DH thinks there might be another egg in there.

The picture is sideways Addie .. tilt your head to the left.

Pretty cool that there is a baby ... keep us posted and let us know if there really is another.

Yes, I don't know why the thumbnail is OK, but when you click on the pic, it's sideways. iPad doesn't help, if you tilt it, it doesn't upright. Sorry!

Oh dear, sideways it does look like a rabbit!

No, it's a dove mama and baby! I tried to explain to DH that there are apps to crop, backlight, and edit iPhone pics, he gave me a blank look. Oh well, I don't use them either.

Thanks I got it. Pretty cool.

I was just listening to local news. A class of second graders found a nest of abandoned ducklings. The teacher brought them inside and now they are raising them and getting a science lesson as well. The news station is going to follow them. The teacher is going to try and find the mother. This ought to be interesting.
