Sitting on a teenager

Lovey Dovey finally gave birth. Unfortunately it appears she has been sitting on a condor egg. If this little guy gets any bigger I'm going to have to reinforce the hanging pot with 1/4 steel chain.

Peace begins at home

We recently planted flowers in a hanging pot on our porch, right next to our front door. Mr and Mrs. Mourning Dove thought it was lovely and after working things out with their avian real estate agent decided to move in and raise a family. There is little we can do but come and go quietly, passing not 18 inches from Mrs. Dove each time. She sits on her nest with total equipoise, unflustered by our passings.
