    I wish I could find a wild dove's nest so I could steal the eggs [​IMG] In my defense, I don't have the wild colored ringneck and captive-hatched babies would not freak out as bad as wild caught. [​IMG]

    Why do those babies look like the have bills instead of beaks to me? Are you sure the eggs were Dove? I have one of these nests right out in front of my dining table window. She made the nest in a bird feeder Gazebo, and nothing bothers her. It is a busy area, but she sits tight. So cool.

    Quote:Yes I'm sure, pigeons and doves born like this, then their naked beak grow some contour feather close to the head and it appears to be shorter.
