  1. During one of our recent trips to the beach the Mama and Papa birds (that nest in the dunes) kept running out in front of us during our walk...they were doing the "look at me, look at me- I have a hurt wing" dance in an effort to distract us from their nearby young. I am always amazed by the natural instincts of most creatures. Except humans. Go figure.

  2. Kelly, you aren't kidding - the nightly news constantly reminds us that not everyone has that instinct, sadly.

    Funny thing this morning, I was watering the "fenced-garden", it's just a 3 ft tall split rail with chicken wire garden - and I saw something running through the mulch... it was baby dove! Mama must have put her in there like a playpen, nice thinking since the dogs don't go in there! She was sitting in the shade under the pepper plants and I think Mama was off foraging... I put a little makeshift birdbath out of a plant saucer in there and left them to their oasis!

    Your doves are lucky.
