Interesting...



A pair of doves can produce up to five or six broods a year!



Generally, the female lays 2 eggs.
The nest is never left unattended; one parent sits on the nest from mid-morning until late
afternoon, then the other parent takes over for the night.

  1. Indeed...very interesting! I have some of these lovely birds visit the ground near the bird feeders. They always seem so delicate.

  2. No wonder we have so many in our yard! They are so pretty, though!
