Have you ever seen Puffins up close?  I just found a Puffin cam today.  Two Puffins incubate their egg, and they have the sweetest faces.  The cam is HD.  This video clip was taken from the burrow cam, but there are two other cams.

May 22, 2017:  Two Puffins take turns incubating their egg.  Their burrow is located in Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge in the Gulf of Maine.

May 26, 2017:  Taking turns to incubate their precious eggs, one of the Puffins returns to the burrow.  Puffins are monogamous, and the female lays only one egg.  The egg is large compared to her body size.  The Atlantic puffin (Fratercula arctica), also known as the common puffin

Egg laid:  May 22, 2017
Incubation time: 39 – 45 days

June 10, 2017:  In the background you can hear a strange noise.  No, it’s not a chainsaw trimming trees.  Silent above ground, in breeding burrows the Atlantic puffin’s call is a deep “arrr-uh.”  You can also hear the calls of other birds.

Atlantic puffin rearranges her nest and turns her egg.  You can hear many other noisy birds in the area.

We have mourning doves in our yard.  The platform feeders keep them off the ground and safe from outdoor cats.

I was glad to find this mourning dove web cam in LaVerne.  Now I have a bird's eye view of their nest.  No information on when the eggs were laid.

  <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFGQgnTniZ8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFGQgnTniZ8</a>

July 5, 2017:  These mourning doves have two eggs in their nest.  Father and mother take turns incubating the eggs.  When taking off, their wings make a sharp whistling or whinnying. Mourning Doves are the most frequently hunted species in North America.

Incubation period:  14 days

LaVerne, California

July 7, 2017:  Mother feeds her baby chick, which was hatched either yesterday or today.  She feeds him crop milk, a secretion from the lining of the crop of parent birds that is regurgitated to young birds.  Both father and mother doves provide crop milk.

First hatch:  July 6, 2017

Incubation period:  14 days

July 10, 2017:  I think Mother spends most of the time in the nest with the babies.  However, fathers also feed the chicks.  Mother needs a break!  Father comes to the nest after she flies away.  He has to wake up the babies in order to feed them.  As usual, they have good appetites!

First hatch:  July 6, 2017
Second hatch:  July 7, 2017

Incubation period:  14 days
