Dove Nest

I found this Eurasian collared dove nest in a mulberry tree, about eight feet from the ground. Doves build relatively flimsy nests from small sticks. They generally don't use soft grass and leaves in their nest like other birds. Almost all doves lay two white eggs. The eggs takes about two weeks to hatch. Both male and female care for the young, which leave the nest from 2 to 3 weeks.

What a great find. I get so excited when I stumble upon a nest. We have a few Eurasian Collared Doves in our area. Mourning Doves are much more common though.
