Sometimes the little things in life are more than enough, Sheikh Hamdan wrote.

Remember the bird that built a nest on the windshield of the Dubai Crown Prince's Mercedes SUV? Its eggs have hatched, and Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum captured some tender moments between the bird parents and their fluffy chicks.

In an 80-second Instagram video that Sheikh Hamdan posted on Wednesday, a pair of doves looked busy as they did their 'bird parenting' tasks: Removing egg shells from their nest, keeping their babies warm, and giving them 'kisses'. The camera also zoomed in on the two adorable chicks wriggling in their nest.

Within the first hour of the video's posting, it garnered over 230,000 hearts and at least 3,700 comments. And what made it shine even more was the caption Sheikh Hamdan wrote: "Sometimes the little things in life are more than enough."

When the Dubai Crown Prince spotted the nest on his SUV last week, he decided to keep the vehicle parked so as not to disturb the bird that was then sitting on its eggs. He also cordoned it off to prevent anyone or any car from getting too close. It was a gesture that won hearts online, with netizens thanking the him for protecting the bird.
