this is tia.
she is the mourning dove that has taken up permanent residency in megan & neal's back-porch fireplace thingy. (what's the technical term?)
i have been totally all about her being back there--she's usually sitting on her nest, and we can all be hanging out at the table right below her nest and she doesn't seem to mind. in fact, i think she rather enjoys surveying us from on high.
unfortunately, my extreme love for this bird has managed to bring me to one conclusion. (and one conclusion only.) i am OLD.
OLD PEOPLE do things like watch birds in nests outside people's houses and talk about them constantly and call their sister (allegedly.) to see what said birdie is doing. & then bring their cameras over to take thirty (allegedly.) photos.
i was THRILLED when megan called to inform me a few weeks ago that tia was "expecting". two tiny little eggs--
she then implied that tia gets around, since she was fairly certain that there had been a few baby birdies not too long before that.
megan also may or may not have also referred to her as the "michelle duggar of the dove world":
