Mother hen nesting on February 24, 2007
This is the second week of building the nest. The hen is now staying on the nest while the male is off gathering material to build the nest better and bigger. He returns often.
Best viewed large. Taken with a Canon 10D, 28 - 70mm "L" lens at 70mm.
A few days later we had a great deal of high winds that destroyed the nest. Now the doves are off some where else building another.
