The Parma Police Department in Ohio noticed something suspicious on the top of the squad car. As they approached, they soon realized it was a mourning dove’s nest with eggs in it.
Rather than getting rid of the bird and her eggs, they put an umbrella up to help protect the mother from the elements.
“After a mourning dove created a nest at the base of the windshield on a Parma Auxiliary Police car, our officers took steps to make sure it isn’t disturbed, even adding an umbrella to keep it dry,” they described on Facebook.
They even went as far to put up caution tape to make sure nobody tampered with the nest.
