Mourning Doves Have Poor Planning Skills

Recently, Mother Duck noticed a bunch of twigs and various other plant scraps littering the corner of our patio, surrounding the base of one of the support beams for the pergola.  When she looked up, she found a pair of mourning doves trying in utter futility to build a nest.  Unfortunately, the space was simply too cramped and exposed for a nest to find purchase.  The little bird couple have since given up, but I took a few photos to commemorate the adorable event!

Who made this mess?
Oh, it was this silly scoundrel!
Are you sure that’s a good spot?
Teamwork does not always make the dreams work.
