114/365 - Doting Mother

Last year, we found a nest of eggs in our front door's flower arrangement, seen here. Unfortunately, things didn't end with little baby birds, as the nest was abandoned.

This year, we have another nest:
Another Year, Another Nest

And the mom is a mourning dove who is quite fearless, as she won't fly away unless the front door is fully opened.
Sitting On the Nest
I took the picture with the door opened about 4", while standing inside the house on a step stool. She looks like she is part of the door arrangement!

Hopefully, the eggs will hatch and she'll be able to take care of the little birds. We are avoiding use of the front door as much as possible.
