A couple weeks ago I wrote about the pair of mourning doves nesting in my fire escape garden.

This morning I heard the classic mourning dove call, only it sounded like it was coming from a bird recovering from laryngitis. So I took a peak and saw the baby!


Baby is on the right. It's gotten fairly large, almost to adult size. Eventually baby will molt and get its grown-up plumage, but I really like its current style; much edgier than mom and dad. Though the parents do have some killer eyeliner.

Can't tell if that is mom or dad on the left, but whoever it is was not pleased with my camera lens all up in its beak. So I will leave them be for now.
