Meet our love birds, Romeo and Giulietta:
They are currently taking turns keeping two eggs warm.
Due date is Tuesday.
Happy Love Thursday everyone!

They look pretty serious as they stand guard over the eggs.
Actually this photo was taken pre-eggs, but they definitely take their jobs seriously, yes 🙂
Yes, they DO look serious! But, I’m sure word got out throughout the animal kingdom and they know you are their Snow White! 😉

Well birds don’t often *look* really jovial in general, do they? 😉 I need to get me some darker hair to be Snow White…I do have a rather pale complexion though 😉
Aw! Aren’t they the sweetest! I bet their babies will be adorable little things!

How sweet…..but, how do know when the chicks are *due*?
The eggs hatch 14-18 days after incubation starts 🙂
Thanks, although I like to call them doves 😉
Very cool! And they way they are standing, they look like an upside down heart!
Yeah, I asked if they could stand like that for Love Thursday…aren’t they wonderful?! Seriously I do love how they’re standing 🙂
Great shot & congrats on the expected hatchlings! Happy Love Thursday 🙂
Thanks O, and thanks for stopping by 🙂
awwww, good luck to the babies!

Um, er, you’ll have to talk to P….
They are perfect for Love Thurs. and very beautiful. I used to live in Chicago and for 14 years had, presumably, the same two Mourning Doves perched on my back deck railing.
Thanks for sharing!

What a treat you had with those doves!
Very pretty birds! Are they yours? And which is the male/female?
bonggamom’s last blog post..Time to Feast!
Yes they’re ours, and the (pretty pretty) white one is female 🙂
Oh, how sweet!
Baby pigeons and doves are very cute. Enjoy.
I’m nervous for any birth, Sara, so I’m just hoping all goes well 🙂
It’s so funny… growing up in NYC, I hate pigeons with a passion, and yet I LOVE mourning doves, etc. Romeo and Giulietta are just lovely.

I’m not too fond of pigeons either, but these are just too cute 🙂
