Thanks for all the pictures of the baby doves Richie. They are just adorable and I'm happy they are doing so well.

Richie, not only are the pictures you've posted wonderful, but you've shown a tender side of your personality.

They have grown so much. I hope they make it too. Thanks for the update Richie.

thanks everyone. I really appreciate it. it's been wonderful to be able to keep tabs on these two little guys. I was so upset when they were scared out of their nest before I thought they were ready, but they adapted to hiding under the bushes and small palms in my front garden and have thrived.

They are used to me and my camera, I think, and do not get nervous when I approach to take a snapshot.

Someday real soon I know I'll go out to get my paper and find they are gone. I'm expecting to be both sad and happy.
