Disturbing the nest

Well, my father-in-law stopped watering a hanging fern plant because an expecting mother pigeon created a nest in it. The leaves have all died and now it's just a hanging dead plant. However, there is a beautiful little family of pigeons living in it. Today, I attempted to photograph them. I kept getting closer and closer until I unfortunately scared them all away. I felt so horrible! What had I done? I forced 2 baby pigeons to fly into the unknown before all of their feathers had grown in! My only comfort is that they flew pretty good! I just pray that the mommy pigeon will have the ability to lead her babies back home.

I did manage to get a few pics from this experience. ;)
