The nest is right outside my study, so I'll keep track and post the chicks as well.

Those pictures are lovely. Very warming. I too have doves in my house. They collect straw for building nest as I watch. But I have not spotted where it is.

Thanks Satyen. Most of my spottings is right here in my garden with about 150 recorded in a 30x50m area.

Great spotting Johan. During my last visit to South Africa, I was not carrying my camera. I will surely carry it on my next visit. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful wildlife from your part of the world :-)
