I have no idea what happened to the morning dove that was nesting on my front porch. But the nest has been empty for about a week now. It wasn't a great place for a bird that is as scared of the world as morning doves tend to be. Occasionally someone came in or went out, or delivered a package to my door.
There are a bunch of morning doves in the area right now. I literally almost ran one over this morning coming home from the chiropractor. She wouldn't take flight and get out of the road. They are really stupid birds.
I never realized that morning doves lived in this part of the country. I knew pigeons in the Northeast. But I saw my first dove in California, so that is where I thought they lived.
Anyway, she has abandoned the nest so I really need to get it down from my porch.
