A Nesting Dove In My Backyard

We have been rebuilding our 20 year old backyard fence this past week. This morning I went out to check on how well the concrete was setting up in the post holes, and came across this nesting dove. She let me get just a foot away with my cell phone camera to take this picture of her sitting on her nest in the crotch of an old peach tree. The tree has long since been pruned back with extreme prejudice to keep it’s fruit from falling into the pool, but the dove seems to like this habitat right next to the noisy pool filter, along with the clamor of fence repair guys running all over the place. We see other wildlife from time to time as well. Racoons and Possums frequently come around at night. I hope they don’t rob the nest. All seems peaceful… for now anyway.
