Dove’s nest in a cholla

We have several pairs of doves nesting in the cholla cacti around our home. This nest has two eggs.


Here one of the parents is sitting on the nest.

And here are the tiny babies, just starting to get their first feathers.

  1. How amazing! Such a picturesque spot to bring up the little ones – and well spotted and captured. Great shots!

    • They raised two sets in this spot this year. Cholla cactus seems to be a favorite nesting spot. Thanks for your comment.

  2. What wonderful photography.
