A Baby Dove

This afternoon as I looked up into the arbor
to check on the Mama Dove,
I thought I saw something else
with her so I went around to the other side
and sure enough, there was her baby.
She is very protective and soon the baby
was out of sight, tucked under Mama.
They were so beautiful together.
Hope they all stay safe.

I have never seen a baby dove before. We have many adult doves, so I'm sure a baby dove or two are around somewhere, being protected!
Love your newest banner.

Lori ann,
On Sat. the Mama dove left the nest in search of food so we had a better view of the baby...
