In theory, this is a much better location than a clay pot in our front entryway, or a flimsy tree branch overhanging the pool. But the wind gusts here have been pretty strong lately, and so I wonder how babies will do way up there on a windy day.
The nest is newly built this past week. The huge palm fronds do provide great shelter from the strong sun. And the Gila Woodpeckers that share the tree provide an almost constant soundtrack.
What more could a dove ask for?
