I spotted a Fledgling Mourning Dove walking around my vehicle yesterday here in my yard. I check around my vehicle before I drive anywhere because over the years I have found several fledgling birds under it. I also have to check around my riding lawn mower for the same reason.
Mourning Doves almost always lay two eggs, so I looked around for a second one, but never found it. This one that I did find was walking around which is unusual. Most of the time when I find one here in my yard it will be well hidden by remaining still. It may have been going to a better spot so that it could be fed by the male Dove. They stay nearby the nest to be fed by the male for up to two weeks after fledging.
I kept my distance from this young dove after getting a few photos. I was able to watch it from inside my house and it finally settled near a large pine tree. I was hoping to see it being fed. At one time I saw it fly up into the pine tree, but it couldn't grab the limb it was going for and landed back on the ground. The landing was terrible and I thought it had injured itself. A few second later it moved out of my view so I guess it was okay.
