Today's morning capture of the young Mourning Dove.
The other nestling must have been prey for an overnight critter earlier this week.

The Mourning Dove eggs hatched last week.
This is an image I shot this afternoon of both chicks sitting in the nest.

I baked an apple pie yesterday and one of the spices was ground mace, also cinnamon and ginger.

Robins built a nest in the yaupon holly bush in the front yard earlier this year. Mourning Doves recently moved into the nest.  Over the weekend, I noticed the doves gathering building materials, so I guess the nest wasn't completely move in ready.
