Bird Break, too

Some updates from the bird world. First up, Lenor's dove love-nest.

A dove has been sitting in last year's nest in the center of our grapefruit tree. She was there all day yesterday (2/16) and again today (2/17). So exciting!

Why all the excitement about a Mourning Dove, you may ask? Last year's dove successfully fledged (at least) four chicks (possibly as many as six). Two are pictured here. To be continued...

Now for two wrens from Ned Harris, who took a short walk in Sabino Canyon on 2/26. Hooray!
