Mourning Dove sitting on the nest, incubating, taking a snooze. Interesting fact: both male and female Mourning Doves share the incubation duties. The male Mourning Dove incubates the eggs without once leaving the nest from morning until evening. The female does the same thing from evening until morning. The changeover takes place between 8:30 and 10:30 in the morning and between 4:30 and 5:30 in the evening.
