On my patio. Momma bird has been sitting on that nest for weeks, not moving a feather.
Mourning Doves are light grey and brown and generally muted in color. Males and females are similar in appearance. The species is generally monogamous, with two squabs (young) per brood. Both parents incubate and care for the young. Wikipedia
