I've been out so much this past week, what with jury duty and evenings recovering with friends or arts, it's been mighty quiet in my apartment. Quiet enough that this dove decided the flowerpot on my fire escape made a good place to build a nest. When we made eye contact for the first time this morning, she stared at me, immobile. As she desired, I went away (though of course I later fetched my camera; picture's a bit dull because taken through glass). I gather it's too late for her too move.
Behold - her precious charges!
She must have gone off to get something to eat...
