    They hatched, l know for a while you were worried about the nest being raided. Really nice shots. :)

    This was originally a Robin's nest, which did get raided, but the Doves are smarter -- the male and female trade off and never leave the nest unattended.

    Only female robins sit on the nest, and leave for 10-15min every hour or so.

    Great shot, using the foreground leaves OOF to frame the Doves made this one really special.
