They try to build up nests around my house in some of the worst places given their size and it doesn't work out that well. But apparently, they get the job done, because there are many! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Birds, backyarding and upcycling keep my creative juices flowing. Posted: 9:25 am on August 27th

And coincidentally, a Mr Dove has just spent the past two full days building a nest, twig by twig, for Mrs Dove on top of a set of old traffic lights in the corner of my partners work area only to have the whole thing collapse and 100 pieces of bird-nest fall onto the workbench and floor leaving not a single twig behind! Not very good at nest building those doves. I was worried for Mrs Dove because she had looked ready to pop. So Mr and Mrs Dove slept rough last night and meanwhile I got up on the work bench, in my heels as we were going out, and covered the top of the lights with chicken wire and replaced some of the twigs. I could hear Mr Dove hard at it when I first woke this morning and went out to find Mrs Dove proudly sitting on her flash new improved nest. All happy :) Maybe not a big deal to you but special for me as it is more often lizards visiting here. Posted: 10:09 pm on August 26th
