When I was outside sawing wood this week I noticed a morning dove hanging out on the telephone wire overhead, and later carrying bits of pine needles over to the doorway above ours. By week's end our new neighbors had settled in...to the busiest, noisiest corner of the building. So far they seem pretty nonplussed by all the activity.
I look forward to watching how their family progresses. I just hope their eggs don't scramble too much when that AC starts its summer business.
