Nesting White-winged Doves?

Recommended Posts

I feel incredibly lucky to have witnessed the adorable courtship of these doves yesterday, but I am just curious-- Was the nest only a tool used in courtship by the male and nothing more, or will this be the actual nest they will use to raise young in? I don't know much about the nesting behavior of doves. This nest is very high up in a tree and I'm pretty sure it also has been here for years, it might've been an old Kite nest or something similar. I'm not sure exactly how long the courtship lasted, but the male had been singing on and off all day and I saw the actual event go on for about 20 or so minutes until copulation occurred, after that I let them be.

This is one of the many adorable photos I got of them in the nest.
