Not that you would want to with the photo below, but if you want a larger image of a photo simply double click on the image and a new window will pop up with a larger version of the photo. This is information that could be helpful to the gals of the DBE that follow along occasionally.
Here’s another tip gals: If you want to leave a comment and have it appear on a post you will be asked to type some letters in a window to confirm you are not a nasty robot leaving spam junk. No, not the kind of canned meat that Anna makes famous sandwiches with. Make sure you get through that process and then your comment will be included. It’s that way on most all blogs.
Now for the ingrates. Honestly, the stupid mourning doves that nest in my yard aren’t doing me any favors. Just look at the mess below one of the nests in the pergola. They brought in so many weed seeds with their nesting materials that I consider them extremely bad tenants. Soon this single mother will have some babies she will try to raise before she “hooks up” with some other fly by night fella and be back on the nest. The pile of poop can only grow. This continues all summer long.
The plan is to remove any nest once it’s empty and replace it with a healthy amount of scare tape. Doves are pretty and all but poop and weeds are the limit. If there is evidence that doves eat earwigs I may reconsider the eviction. Otherwise, notice has been served.
