This bird has lived on my balcony for at least six months, possibly quite a bit longer. Her nest is right outside my kitchen window, and I catch myself checking on her periodically, especially when there is bad weather. Bomber likes to check on her too, but for different reasons. Since that cat doesn't even kill bugs, just points them out to me with a meow, I'm not too worried about what she might do to my morning dove. I don't know why but I find it comforting when I see my lady bird snug in her nest. We're both home.
