Re: mourning dove shelter

On the ground. My back yard is completely fenced - no foxes down here
anyway. Oh there's one mangy looking cat that occasionally scales the
fence and gets a blast from the water hose for his troubles.

I don't see him for months after this happens. And there's nothing else
around here that can get into the yard and get them. An occasional hawk
wanders into town, but he'd never see them under the trees.

Heck - I can't see them if I'm standing right next to them and I know
where their hiding place is!! The rare copperhead that strays into the
garden gets the Anne Boleyn treatment - pronto. Nope - it's a sanctuary
and I make sure it stays that way.

Very fond of my birdies!!
