Hiding in Plain Sight

A pair of Mourning Doves decided to nest in our backyard redbud tree. I'm amazed that I was able to capture a couple of pictures of a bird on the nest. The top one was April 28, the bottom one today, May 3, just a little while ago.

I understand the male and female Mourning Doves take turns on the nest. I found it in the first place while they were changing shifts. I'm looking and listening for babies, and hoping they don't become snacks for the neighborhood roaming cats.
