Spring Alarm Clocks.

These guys sit on my bedroom window sill and have been waking me up every morning for the past week. And I don't mind.

"One of the things that is soon noticed about Mourning Doves is the peculiar noise made by the birds in flight. Aside from that, the Mourning Dove makes no noise other than its long-drawn, maoning coo that is heard more frequently in the spring. This is the mournful sound that gives the bird its name. Sometimes the Mourning Dove will lay its two eggs in a mere depression on the ground but in general it builds a skimpy nest of twigs or moves into an old nest left by some other bird."
