My favorite bird is the mourning dove. Their sound is the most pleasant of any bird out there.
I read today its in decline. To help it I will build a cone for easy nesting.
young mourning dove
- 12″ x 12″ Hardware cloth
- Tin Snips
Cut a circle from the hardware cloth. Measure a 2.5″ wide pie piece and cut out. This will allow you to pull the edges together to form a cone. Secure the edges with wire. Attach to the crotch of a tree limb with wire or staples.
I will post my picture once I have it up.
