Dove on the Job
This dove is raising her second brood of babies at a house we do window cleaning once a year in Carmel Valley. She kept a good eye on me as I washed the windows, but was not going to budge off her babies for anything. Her mate was nearby in a tree. cooing reassuringly.
It was a perfect day, for once, at this house. Usually it is blazing sunny, hot and mercilessly bright, the windows get so hot the water dries before you can squeegee them. The house was way too warm inside, so it was a pleasure to step out into the cool air on the deck. Lots of spiders and cobwebs everywhere, it's wonderful when the job is done to see a houseful of sparkling windows.
