The bronzewing pigeons that I reported nest building on 8 July have produced at least one young. At about 0830 this morning I saw a quite advanced youngster ( pretty much fully feathered) sitting in the nest in front of the male. By the time a camera was found, it had disappeared back under dad. I have been monitoring the nest morning and afternoons daily and over the past 8 days had noticed shifts in alignment of the sitting bird from across the nest to along often with the rear of their bodies a bit elevated so I guessed something had happened. Will try and get a pic but I'm told they tend to fledge quickly.
