The Eurasian Collared Doves are still maintaining the nesting site in the palm tree in the backyard. I set out a little bit of seed for them so they don’t have to go far to eat something. I know the finches and jays will probably eat most of it, but they’ll leave the millet for the doves.
Here’s a video snippet of one of the parents on the nest. Mom and dad both incubate the eggs, and I can’t tell the sexes apart in this species.
