More creatures!

There have also been quite a few baby birds this summer...


These were out on the balcony for a while in April and May.

Hmm... It looks like doves have that red dot on their beaks like gulls do during breeding time. It signals to the kids, "Peck here for food."

How far from the nest were you when you took this picture?

Not far -- 5 or 6 feet, maybe. The shelf that mom built the nest on is right next to the door, and I hated the disturb her, so I didn't go out at all while she was sitting on the eggs, and even once the babies hatched, I only went out a few times. And then I tried to just slip by quickly and get as far away as I could while I took photos. It's a small balcony, though, so I couldn't get all that far away.
