We have new babies!
Baby birds that is. The new Mourning Doves arrived last week. They are huge and healthy I believe, and so very cute to look at. Mackenzie discovered them right away when they hatched which was awesome. It caused a lot of excitement and we were right out there with the camera and mom was gracious enough to let us take a few snap shots.
They are very fuzzy little things, and they eat a regurgitated milk like fluid from mom which is what is happening in the picture where it looks like they are kissing.
We were also introduced to mom's "life mate" as it is called in the research book. He happened to stop by after we had put the camera away. Probably to check in on the family. A very cool experience for the girls for sure.
Enjoy the pics!
