Mourning Dove

Was up on a ladder a couple of days ago washing windows at the back of the house.

I knew there were mourning doves were in this conifer from seeing them thru the big cathedral window from the inside. This is the second year in a row that they have nested in this exact spot, so that continuity makes me happy.

But I had no idea that the bird would stay put on the nest when I was literally only 3' away:

I did the window and exited as quickly as possible.  The dove held steady the whole time, keeping a watchful eye on me.
