  1. Without encouraging them with string and stuff, mourning doves are nesting again on our front porch. We have seen hatchlings make it to fledglings and also failure. We try to use the back door for our coming and going, but the nest is nearly under your nose if you come onto the front porch. Out of cat reach, at least. I haven’t peeked lately, but there is at least one egg.


    • Kinda depends anymore. For instance, looking at the first redbuds opening, this year it was around March 25, which is 2 weeks earlier than last year, 3 weeks earlier than 2013, but behind 2012, the year of the drought, when redbuds were blooming by the 21st of May. My sense in 2007 when I wrote Wild Douglas County was that the first week of April was the “normal” time for redbuds to open, so by that we are ahead a little more than a week, with plenty of room for “climate weirding” to mix it up a bit….
