Twins by janetb


My heart! After weeks of watching their Mama on the nest, today I finally found twin Mourning Doves tucked safely beneath her (the second hatchling’s facing the opposite direction). According to my calculations, they should be 11 days old; so they'll stay put right here for another four days or so. When they leave the nest, they'll stay nearby for another week or two while the parents continue to feed them. What grace to be able to witness their journey from egg to independence. Little altars everywhere!

Even the sparrow has found a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
LORD Almighty, my King and my God.
— Psalm 84:3

Oh, how sweet - I must fav. I have faithful doves that visit each day, but I've never seen any babies. And the scripture is perfect (I'm currently journaling Psalms...I'll be highlighting that one when I get to it)
