Into the Nest : This book has been officially approved by the neighbor kids. Earlier this summer, a mama Mourning .dove made a nest on a branch just outside their dining room window. Low and behold! Not one, but two eggs were laid. Chicks arrived and the kids’ window to nature went live. The boys were quite concerned about how the babies were going to get fed and what the mama bird was getting to eat. Alas! We found the answer, “pigeon milk.” Into the Nest: Intimate Views of the Courting, Parenting, and Family Lives of Familiar Birds gets a five star rating from the new birders and me.
