Two Baby Turtle Doves

It was a surprise today to see the baby doves were hatched. The Mama and Papa doves were not around. One of the baby dove looked big with dry feathers. I thought it was Mama dove. When I zoom in the camera, I saw another baby, and its feathers were still a little bit wet. Then they switched positions. I looked around to make sure the parent birds were not nearby, I put a lounge chair close to the nest and stood on it to take a few photos. The baby with dried feathers must be born first, and the other one later. The first baby seems to be a boy and the second, a girl. They looked healthy and lovely. I am going to take another look tomorrow.
