Mourning Dove Fledgelings

First and second day out of the nest. They can fly, but mostly they don't. They like to sit in a corner of the yard, in the shade, and only move when forced to seek new shade. Mostly the parents still seem to be feeding them. They're almost totally silent except when they fly; they never call for food like the active, demanding mockingbird chicks last year did.
