Collared Doves Nesting

No new makes from me today but I just wanted to stop by and wish everyone a very Happy Easter, I haven't had any chocolate eggs but I have a couple of real eggs in the garden..

Collared Dove Eggs

These belong to a lovely pair of Collared Doves that have decided that an old hanging basket is the ideal place for them to nest, they are only a young pair and this is probably their first 'nest'. They have added nothing to the grass and weeds that were already growing in the basket.

Dove in the Garden

The basket is hanging a couple of feet away from my kitchen window, they have got so used to me that they don't fly away when I open or close the window, they don't even fly away when I am out in the garden unless I'm hanging washing out but as soon as I walk away from the washing line the lovely little dove is back sitting on the eggs.

Happy Easter to all who read this and to everyone who takes part in Handmade Monday
