I'm still struggling with my DSFDF challenge so I took a little break and painted out little Mourning Dove that has taken roost under our front porch eave.
She/ he's been there for a little over a week. Their first attempt of a nest failed and now the couple have settled in nicely. I found Nestwatch.org on the web and learned incubation is only a couple of weeks. I registered this nest there and also found a short video on a wonderful technical artist who is drawing a poster for fundraising purposes. Look at how he researches and draws birds that must be approved by scientists/researchers before he can place them on the poster here.
