They say springtime is imminent....

Brenda (drchoneydew) kindly provided the following information: Mourning doves pair in the spring. After the male chooses a nesting site, the pair spends three to four days building a nest from twigs and sometimes grass. It might be on the ground or up to 20 feet up in a tree. The female lays two white eggs, which both parents incubate. Both care for the young until they leave the nest at 11 to 15 days of age. A pair may raise two families in a single summer.

UPDATE 2011-11-14: I should have added from the beginning that the image was softened, and not sharpened, for a change as I thought it would better suit the mood of the picture. Have now placed the original image in the workshop.

The second image is the (more) original sharper one before it was softened.
