The circle of life...

No sooner had I posted the pictures of the mama dove than another bird swooped in and ate them! I guess mama was off getting something to eat, but when I peered out the window, I noticed that I couldn't see the eggs. Glancing over the balcony, I spotted the eggs in the neighbor's yard with the insides eaten. My folks believe that it was most likely the act of a blue jay or a crow, both of which eat the eggs out of nests.

How sad. In under 24 hours, Jeff and I had grown oddly fond of this dove and her soon-to-be family. :(
