Feeding Baby Inca Dove

Inca Doves in nest
I noticed mama dove was sitting high on her nest and then later that day I saw the baby. It must have hatched a while ago because the chick is almost half the size of the adult.

I was fortunate to get pictures of the mom feeding her newborn.

I also saw the young one flapping her wings. I imagine the new one will fly pretty soon and start to explore the world outside the nest.
