You know the drill…since I’m rarely wordless, I like to combine Wordless Wednesday with Wordful Wednesday – that way I can be lazy efficient and cover both bases with one easy post! 😉

Remember last week when I posted this unusual find in my greenhouse?
I didn’t want to disturb the mommy bird, so I waited a few days, and was rewarded with this:
So I made sure I went out there every day to keep an eye on things and watch the progression:
And finally, on Monday I saw this:

I have actually seen the baby dove hanging around the front grape arbor where I have a bird feeder hanging – the smaller birds toss seeds from it to the ground and the doves mac out on those seeds. It was fun seeing the ‘baby’ dove following the older doves around by air – I tried to get a picture but I think he/she was onto me from the previous photo shoots. 😉

  1. I once had a wren nest in my greenhouse – my favorite bird! You won’t believe it, but a big ol’ blacksnake came in there and ate the eggs! I hate snakes!

  2. Aw, how cool! Did you tell your kids it was a “science project”? 😉

  3. Wow. I can’t believe she let you get that close! Great shots!
    Shameless plug: I am having a great giveaway! Stop on by to enter!

  4. Love the pictures — I really like the last one. Stop by my blog I got something for you. TFS

  5. Adorable! Last summer the kids and I got to follow a Killdee couple and the hatching of their eggs.

    Also, a Mama Chuck Willow hatched two little youngin’s — then the stupide hurricane drowned us and washed the babies away. 🙁 The Mama, the kids and I spent hours searching in hopes — but, alas no babies were found.

  6. What a beautiful glimpse into another mommy’s life… the winged variety…

    What a gorgeoud dove.

    Thanks for sharing.

  7. Aww, baby birds are so CUTE! We saw two cranes crossing the road yesterday with their mini-mes in tow and it was adorable.

  8. I love these. How sweet. I would have never wanted to stop watching them. You took some great shots of them together.

    Happy WW from Sara @ Mostly Wordless Wednesday HQ!

  9. Those photos are so cute! We have a bunch of birds nests on our house. It drives our cats insane.

  10. you got some great photos! Mama bird must not have seen you as a threat; unlike that Rottweiler..

  11. I have birds that build a nest every year on my porch, and it usually ends up very messy! LOL

  12. Great shots. Love the pictures. We have martins building a nest in the carport. I will have to try and get a picture.

  13. This was so cool! I’m really surprised the mama bird let you get so close to take her picture! Baby bird is precious!

    Justine 😮 )

  14. Oh my gosh! That must have been amazing to be a part of! And I like your idea of wordful Wednesday instead!

  15. Oh my goodness this is so cute!!
    And whats even more awesome is that fact that Im doing this exact same thing right now!! hahaha
    Great pictures by the way!!

  16. How sweet! I love these pictures! I love how the mama bird is just sitting on the baby until it’s time to move on. I’m going to try doing that to my son, too, sit on him until he’s 30.

  17. Great pictures!

    We have a duck nesting at school ready to pop about 4 eggs. Fun to watch nature hatch.

  18. How precious! We’ve had a mama duck and her 11 ducklings in the yard the last couple of days. It’s so fun to watch!
