Other Fledglings at CyFair

.Western Kingbirds aren't the only nesting birds I've been watching on the CyFair campus. Oddly enough, the basketball court where the Kingbirds have their nest has also attracted nesting Mourning Doves.

The two baby Doves have now fledged and are on the ground.

However, they haven't moved very far from the nest. They have spent the past several days hunkered down in an angle formed by two walls or on the grass nearby.

I can't imagine that they're ready to forage for themselves yet but I haven't once seen a parent bird anywhere near them.
