Chicks making great progress in playground shelter

The collared dove chicks in our front playground shelter are making amazing progress. After only one week (since hatching) they are both looking quite large and healthy. It is obviously a good place to live. When they are a bit bigger the young birds will face the most dangerous time of their lives - fledging. This is when they have to leave the nest and learn to fly & find their own food.
