new eggs

These eggs were laid 15 days ago.  As soon as I spotted them, I reinforced the nest with some cardboard underneath it.  (Doves are notoriously bad nest builders.)  The previous occupant lost both hatchlings because they fell through the nest.  These two eggs both hatched in the past 24 hours.  I'm shooting some video each day now until they are big enough to leave the nest which should be in about 15 - 19 days.  I hope they make it...   84,91,54,0,B

We've had a pair of doves buid a nest in a hanging basket on our porch for a few years now. Great parents but just awful nest builders,lol.
