Precarious but cute

We are big fans of the mourning doves that visit our bird feeder back home in the States. So we were pleased to discover that Egypt and Jordan have a very similar bird, the laughing dove. Laughing doves appeared at most of the sites we visited, including our final stop at the Dead Sea Spa.

As we were resting after our dip in Dead Sea, we noticed a laughing dove gathering material for a nest. We followed it and discovered the dove couple building their nest ... in a ceiling fan (click on the photo for a bigger picture). Here's hoping that their brood fledges before the Dead Sea Spa turns the fan on.
