We’ve noticed the Mourning Doves for the past week, camping on our back porch and hunting for a nesting site. I’ve decided to call the pair Bill and Coo, for obvious reasons.
Which one is Bill and which is Coo? Males typically have a ruddy breast and sport a faint sky blue cap. I think Bill is on the right in the short video below in which they–bill and coo.
I caught sight of them today looking over our front window box. If they choose to nest there, we would view the whole drama.
We’ll see. Title of the music in the video? “Is This Love?”
