The time has come... I have happened to notice an egg laid in the nest box about a week after the female dove was frequenting in and out of the nest, especially during the morning hours. Before laying, I added some dry grass and weeds and layered them in the nest to use as bedding to cushion the egg so it doesn't rest on a hard surface. Here's a photo before the egg was laid: ...during when one of the females sat on the nest: ...and after the first egg was laid: Best wishes to you all! I'm so "eggcited" for the second egg to be laid, then the female begins incubating the eggs for about 2 weeks until they hatch!!!
