ZEBRA DOVES – 12. Twenty four days old and still…

posted in: Nesting, Pigeon-Dove | 0

Guess what? Yesterday morning the doves made another return visit. A parent bird and two fledglings, now 24 days old. Late that morning there were repeated cooing by the parent bird (male?) who returned to the original nesting site. It remained there for some time, cooing and making “gurring” sound for some ten minutes, probably calling for its mate to inspect the nesting site. No luck. That evening all three birds returned to spent the night on a branch of a nearby tree, flying off early this morning.
