Dove family update and March desktop calendar wallpaper

Until yesterday, I had little new news or photos to share of the dove family living in my patio. Well, there was the sad day that I came home and found only one egg in the basket and then two days later found out the one left had hatched. But since then, Mama Bird has been PARKED on top of that chick. Yesterday I saw tufts of little feathers poking out from beneath her and surely thought she had smothered the poor thing. Then I came home yesterday and Mama Bird had flown the nest. And there was the cutest little chick looking up at me! He is so precious, and teeny tiny. I had to keep Barley locked up so I could take these latest photos.

Which leads me to.... I should clarify my last Facebook status update "Having a bird's nest in my plant was fun right up until the moment my dog discovered it. And discovered she could reach it." Barley didn't eat the bird, she ALMOST did. She finally discovered the nest and jumped up to get to it. Mama Bird flew away scared and squawking. Left behind was the tiniest little creature, still in the shape and size of the egg that had contained it. I was too terrified Barley would get to it, that I wasn't able to snap a photo, but it was an incredible sight to see.

My new baby! I need help naming him. Suggestions? I'm leaning towards Nemo, for hatching from the lone surviving egg.

And all I have to say about March's desktop calendar wallpaper is Oops. It is on my calendar to do April's early! Sunlight has such a positive motivational influence on me, that I thought this photo was so appropriate to represent this month of gaining an extra hour of sunlight after work! This makes me so happy, you have no idea. The photo below was taken in the Australian outback. I can't even recall how many layers of sunscreen I had on. Enjoy!
