Some kind of dove(?) family has taken up residence right outside our den window. Our window looks right out into this bougainvillea which grows up and over the driveway trellis, and I think because it's so thorny, the parents thought it would be safe from predators. So we have a great view of the youngsters, and mama and papa taking turns feeding them. Most of the time the chickies just sit and doze, but my daughter swears when she was watching TV they were closely watching it through the window. My daughter took these photos and I think they're so lovely. Here's Pip and Squeak. And here's mama. Or it could be daddy. The kids get very excited at mealtime. What's less exciting are the piles of poop landing in our driveway, thankfully just missing my husband's car. Boy those kids eat a lot.
