We had our sycamore tree pruned back the other day, and unfortunately, there was an active dove nest that went undetected, till the babies were found on the ground at clean-up.
So I scooped their little plops of bodies into a hanging pot, and Husband hung it on a limb of the tree, near where they were found . The parents found them in their makeshift nest, and kept on caring for them till they fledged a few days ago.
Here is a video of their feeding, shot through a pair of binoculars.....
