Hi Andrew: Interesting observation. That is a very early report. I
wonder if the light in anyway will affect the birds. BTW - I believe
mourning doves are not passerines but in a different bird order......

I had a Mourning Dove pair on their nest yesterday at my Dad's place in
Bronxville. I think that's the earliest I've seen one. Poor things
built the nest in a spruce right by one of those annoying very bright
LED security lights beaming down on them all night. Cool stuff. I
think that's also the earliest I've seen a passerine nest.
