The eggs hatched! Two Mourning Dove baby heads peared out of the nest a few days ago. The color of their feathers blends with the nest materials making them difficult to see. Their size and coloring have changed over the past few days.

The mother bird leaves the nest now, presumably for food and water. The two babies wait quietly in the nest for her return.
