Turtledove Babies

Two turtledove baby birds hatched the other day. Momma is very protective of her young and kept a watchful eye on me as I took this shot. I think papa even did a fly-by to make sure his brood was safe. You can see one of the babies to the right of momma and the other to the left, just his/her tail feathers. Took about 20 days for them to hatch. It has been a wonderful distraction from my office window.
