Mourning Dove Eggs

In a dead tree, low to the ground.
Not the smartest bird on the block when it comes to nesting.
Easy prey.
I bet they don't make it to hatch stage.
I'll monitor.

They look like chicken eggs, only smaller. The photo enlarges somewhat cuz taken with tele zoomed in. Someone online said one inch in diameter and that sounds about right.

There is another mourning dove nest in a different live tree higher up. Must be the smarter cousin. lol
