Comment:Observed Spotted doves attempting to build a nest in traffic lights for the last two days.. The design of the cover is such that the nesting material continually fell through the gap. These birds are very successful in adapting to city life but this time they have made a bad choice for a nest. Interesting that they were attracted to the stop light. Any science in favouring red?
