Like the other dove box posted, I had a pair of doves making a nest somewhere they would not be successful. These guys were trying to nest on top of a ladder on my patio. There was a huge pile of grass, twigs and other nest matrial on the ground.
I put up this nest box last night and removed the ladder. This morning they were happily building a nest in the box.
The pair of doves in the other nest box are working on laying their 3rd set of eggs. They have successfully raised 4 babies this year. Last year they raised 4 sets of babies.
Excuse the photos they were taken through the glass of a door to avoid disturbing the birds.
