baby mourning doves

We've had a dove nesting in one of the palm trees by the house.  I've been watching her from the second floor porch for some time.  Last Saturday I peered over as usual - and lo and behold, two little ones! 
 
Mama feeding both babies at once. How does she do that?

The resolution isn't great here, but you can still see mama feeding her babies. 
 
Look, Mom, I can flap my wings!
Two days later, they've grown significantly.
 
It's been such fun watching them.   The palm tree branch on which they're living is right at eye level from the porch.  Makes me happy.
