This is a hanging fake plant on my back porch. We’ve discovered pair of gray doves nesting inside there this year. One of them is constantly in there sitting on the eggs. I haven’t gotten a good look at the eggs yet since one of the doves is always sitting on them. I tried to get some pictures of the dove this morning…
This was the best I could do. Can you see the dove? I’m going to try and rig up a ladder near there to see if I can get some better pictures. (OMG, Pammy Sue is getting out the ladder! Call the EMS NOW! Ha-ha.) I will be careful and try not to break a hip. I’m also being careful not to get too close and upset them. I’d hate it if I caused them to abandoned their next and eggs. That picture was taken with a zoom lens and so will the rest. Wish me luck. I hope to get some good pictures, especially when the babies hatch. Won’t that be fun?
There are also a pair of Cardinals nesting in one of the shrubs in the backyard. We can see them coming and going constantly. It’s impossible to see anything going on inside there, and I don’t want to stick my head in there and disturb them. But…
The Captain put up this birdfeeder a couple of days ago. I’ve seen the Cardinals in the grass and up on the porch since then. I’ve tried to get a good picture of them with no success yet. But I will!
Are y’all watching the Casey Anthony Trial on HLN? I’ve been watching it since it started. I can’t stop watching. A lot of it is boring and slow, but the good parts are worth the wait to me. I have the trial coverage on all day, and then they go into FOUR HOURS of shows that recap it and talk to “experts,” etc. Let’s see, there’s Jane Valez-Mitchell’s show, then Nancy Grace, then Dr. Drew, and then Joy Behar’s show. I’ve had way too much by that point (10PM), but I can’t stop watching.
