This morning I went out to check on baby dove. He was sitting in his nest, all alone, apparently waiting for someone to bring him some food. Late this afternoon, I went out again and found that he has left the nest and was securely perched on the gridwork next to it. He didn't seem at all concerned about me. At least I don't think he was, though his eyes look pretty big as he carefully watched me take photos of him.
At any rate, he seems to be growing fast and will probably test his wings in a day or so and that's the last I'll see of him. So this is his graduation picture. Vaya con dios, young dove.
