Dove and chick sitting on the curb beside a very busy street.Dove and chick sitting on the curb beside a very busy street.It’s amazing that doves have survived to evolve as far as they have. For one thing, their nests are flimsy. They are also more comfortable nesting openly near humans than any other wild bird, at least here in Dallas.

Today this chick and it’s parent were sitting on the curb beside a very busy street. When I came too close the mother tried to fly across the road, and tried to appear injured as if to fool me. Uhh, better to create a less exposed, less vulnerable nest in the first place, Mama!!! Judging from the experience of doves nesting in the wreath at our back door last year, this chick is not ready to fly yet either. Perhaps they both fell from a nest in the tree. I wonder what their chances are for survival with all the cats, dogs, people and vehicles in the vicinity?

Male Cardinal in the back yard, feeding on the sunflower seed headsI’ve set the large sunflower seed heads out near the back door, and the telephoto lens on the tripod set up inside the house. This male looks a little rough around the edges; his beak has worn thin…he must be old.
