RE: id help please

Donna: We, too, have a pair of mourning doves that we have learned to
live peacefully with...every year for the past few they have returned to
our front garden to nest and have their babies; it is an event that our
whole family looks forward to and we take great pride in the fact that
our garden is so attractive to them.LOL! The mother bird keeps her
little ones hidden in amongst my gaura lindhimeiri and the large rocks I
have in there, underneath our little cherry tree. They are probably one
of my all time favorite birds...their expressions are so demure, so
serene; it makes me feel happy just to look at them.

Yipes, what do you mean the mantis are going to eat each other? I
was<br>hoping for a nice crop of mantis to ward off the bad guys
:)<br><br>My mourning dove has been here for the last three years. She
(I think it<br>is a she) lost her mate last year. Earlier this season
she was at the<br>pond with two other doves, but have no idea where they
are hiding out at<br>currently. She is very tame and doesn't panic as I
do my gardening thing<br>around her. In a few months she will leave the
basket, I will replace it<br>with a growing one, then she will return to
it unaware to me till I hit<br>her with that spray of the hose.... we do
this every year.:( --Last year<br>she even let me water the plant,
although she really makes a dent in the<br>plant. We have learned to
live together....:)<br><br>I also get a variety of other birds here
too... all fighting for a place<br>to nest. I have just about given up
on hanging plants, and every tree<br>has a few nests, not to mention all
the oth

er places they seem to find.<br>It amazes me at times....
<br><br>Donna<br><br>> <br>> Jim's right...your second one is most
definitely a praying mantis<br>> case..just leave it be. As soon as it
warms up the little mantis<br>> babies will come out and start eating
each other:-)<br>> <br>> Your bird is a mourning dove...looks like
you'll have a hanging dove<br>> basket this year; not plants:-)<br>>
<br>> And, I agree...think we need some sort of auto-notice along
about<br>> Jan. 1 to tell all of us winter-desk bound types to start
doing push<br>> ups....my old bod has been protesting all week from last
weekend's<br>> pruning and I'm about to pass out from this
weekend's<br>> pruning...Lordy, why did I want all those clipped hedges?
I know<br>> there was a reason at some time or another....<br>> <br>>
