Nesting Habits of the Mourning Dove
The nest is usually poorly constructed, although both sexes of the Mourning Dove are involved in making it – the male gathers the twigs, grass and pine needles and takes it to the female who stays on the nest while she is building it. These nests can be found in trees or even in hanging plants.
The female lays 2 white eggs in the nest, but then both she and her partner take turns incubating the eggs for 14 days. The fledgling Mourning Doves leave the nest in about 15 days after hatching.
