Twin doves

The collared dove does not leave the nest in the honeysuckle very often, hardly at all, but I noticed her fly out the other afternoon so had a peek. I have to climb on the edge of the pond to see up there, and even then I have to angle the camera down and hope for the best, but there were two eggs. I was quite surprised how big they were really, almost the size of a small chicken egg, and they were completely white and glossy.  Incubation is around 2 weeks so I think we probably have maybe a week to go.
