I had been out working in the orchard area and taking photographs. Every once in a while a bird would fly away from above my head and I couldn't see what kind of bird that it was. A couple of days a go I looked up and saw a precarious start of a nest. It was on a large branch but there wasn't much of any other branches to help incorporate a nest. Yesterday I was out and about and I looked up and there she sat. I couldn't believe she had pulled off the nest in that area but it was there.
She really is a lot larger than her nest. I guess that is how the Eurasian ring-neck dove makes their nest. There must be eggs under her as she never left the nest while I was out there.
The tree is an older poplar type tree which looks dead to me. It has just a few branches that put out leaves. She did happen to pick a major branch that did have leaves around it. I was thinking that I would have to take the tree down but it did leaf out on at least a third of the tree,
I am still awestruck that her nest can sit there cantilevered out onto that small branch. I was glad she didn't bother to leave her nest. She is pretty well blended into the location on the tree.
