PARMA, OH (WOIO) - Parma police officers have rigged up a covering to protect a nest of eggs.

Officers said a mama Dove laid two eggs on the front of a cruiser about a week ago. So, officers have blocked off the cruiser with crime scene tape for protection.

They said they won't move it until the birds are out of the nest.

The time for incubation varies from species to species but, as a general rule of thumb, it takes most birds two weeks to incubate their young and another two weeks before the young are ready to leave the nest, according to Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
