These baby's are about 40 feet up on s landing ... Nest is in a valve stem on a gas plant... They are as big as a full size dove... check out the nest it's built out of insulation tie wire

That is a real nest for sure.
Love the use of the tie wires, never seen that.

I don't have the opportunity to dove hunt anymore but we always shot a few smaller young dove that even still had pinfeathers during dove season back when I hunted them a lot.

Possibly Greater Roadrunner or Yellow-billed Cuckoo (which are closely related to each other). Not sure, but the nest materials and only having two in the nest, along with the stout beak and the size have me thinking that. I could be totally wrong, though. Just my guess.
