This story starts as a love story. These two mourning doves met somewhere in Roseville… Perhaps among the oaks in our beloved "False Ravine" right here in our Stoneridge Neighborhood!
I imagine after a few dates around town these two love doves decided to pair-up. In search for a place to roost, they ended up in my backyard in a pot on my deck. AND THEN there were eggs!
I built a temporary barrier on my deck so the nest would not be disturbed.
Over the course of a few weeks the babies grew up!

Watching these birds nest on my deck made me appreciate all that nature has to offer here in Stoneridge. I searched and found some really interesting facts about the "Mourning Doves"
