I have an orange tree in the front yard. This is the first time I've ever been able to have a citrus tree. I was surprised, as I watched this tree grow, to learn that it has thorns.

The tree has grown enough to encourage wildlife. This year there was a young dove that built a nest in the tree. I was astonished that this nest consisted of little more than a dozen twigs. Though, upon looking at her I noticed she was solo, so I thought she was a super efficient gal. A week later she had two eggs in this nest. All I could do was blink. How on Earth did she manage to hatch two eggs and still have room for herself in this nest of twelve twigs?! I believe it must have something to do with the thorn structure on the branches. I was also amazed that although bees were busy working around this tree, they did not bother the birds nor did the birds bother them.

I look forward to reading your comments.

The evolution of humankind can be measured by how its animals are treated.

I was watching the doves that winter under our deck today. They feed on the see that falls on the ground. Hanging out under the deck shields them from the attentions of the birds of prey that buzz through our yard.

We've always tried to help our kids be aware of the needs of the animals that frequent our yard.
