Thank you, linused.  There is much to learn about Ravens, so this nest cam has been very informative.  I hope the parents return next year.

May 18, 2017:  Room and board!  Nestling robins usually fledge at 12 – 14 days.  It’s been 10 days since the first egg hatched.

We have mourning doves in our yard.  The platform feeders keep them off the ground and safe from outdoor cats.

I was glad to find this mourning dove web cam in LaVerne.  Now I have a bird's eye view of their nest.  No information on when the eggs were laid.

  <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFGQgnTniZ8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFGQgnTniZ8</a>

July 5, 2017:  These mourning doves have two eggs in their nest.  Father and mother take turns incubating the eggs.  When taking off, their wings make a sharp whistling or whinnying. Mourning Doves are the most frequently hunted species in North America.

Incubation period:  14 days

July 7, 2017:  Mother feeds her baby chick, which was hatched either yesterday or today.  She feeds him crop milk, a secretion from the lining of the crop of parent birds that is regurgitated to young birds.  Both father and mother doves provide crop milk.

First hatch:  July 6, 2017

Incubation period:  14 days

July 10, 2017:  I think Mother spends most of the time in the nest with the babies.  However, fathers also feed the chicks.  Mother needs a break!  Father comes to the nest after she flies away.  He has to wake up the babies in order to feed them.  As usual, they have good appetites!

First hatch:  July 6, 2017
Second hatch:  July 7, 2017

Incubation period:  14 days

Beans, thank you for the photos and information about the Mourning Doves.  I used to see them in the backyard and thought they were beautiful.  (Sold the house a few years ago).

We have platform feeders in our yard, which attract mostly larger birds.  Many mourning doves.  What I don't get to see is how they grow up.  The live cam is very educational.   thumbs up
