There is a sego palm that grows right up against my bedroom window. Doves nest there every year. Kate and I open the window every morning and have a front row seat to what's happening in the nest... this morning, the babies left the nest. I can only see one of them right now, the backyard is off limits until they can fly.

Here we are, hanging out on the patio. I shot these from my living room with a long lens. This baby is just like a human.. he walks a bit, takes a nap, looks for his parents..tries to get back under his parents, eats..then takes a nap. They are very exciting to watch. I am a proud parent.

Not so exciting to watch.....
