Inca Dove Nest

Can you see the bird's nest in this picture? Look closely on top of the bamboo post.

I watched a pair of Inca Doves build nests over several days on top of both of the bamboo posts in my garden. She settled on the post on the left side and has been sitting on eggs for about a week. What I find so remarkable is that she stays there all day in the full sun where temperatures get well over 100 degrees fahrenheit. I'll keep watch for the babies and if I'm lucky maybe I will get a picture of the newborns.
