Mourning Doves are Nesting


I noticed a male Mourning Dove gathering nesting material, and put a short segment of the effort on my Digital camera.
The male Mourning Dove gathers nesting materials while the female Mourning Dove builds the nest.
The nest is a loose pile of twigs lined with pine needles and grasses, which Mourning Doves prefer to place in the thick foliage of a horizontal tree branch.
Though Mourning Doves prefer coniferous trees, they have observed nesting in deciduous trees as well eaves, gutters, and abandoned equipment.
