Hmmmm They tore it apart? A do over?
I sure hope they didn't move on because of some-one loooooking at them so eagerly.

A dove nest is really just a few twigs haphazardly dropped where they intend to nest!

And not to worry, we stay well back from the french doors so as not to disturb them.

It's actually snowing now, not sticking to the ground though. We had gone inland today and encountered a blizzard!

Hmmm, I don't know how, dap!

We're getting some spring snow flurries and the doves are both sitting on the floor of the balcony! Been there for hours!

The bad recent weather may have caused a problem. We haven't seen them in a week.
