This dove made her nest in the cactus right outside my office window. It was not very smart of her since that gets the sun from early morning to late afternoon. Our temp. is 113 degrees today and it is very, very hot. I guess I'm not so smart either since I made my office in the hottest room in the house
I worry about this bird being too hot and my husband says they know what they are doing, I sure hope so. I did put some water under the tree for her. You would think she would have built her next in the tree. Last summer one built her nest out back right in the sun, go figure.
