A dove built her nest in my balcony , please help ?

A dove built her nest in my balcony , behind the air condition fan about a month ago . She never leaves her nest ! 

There was a male , I saw him only once and I never saw him again.

I’m really afraid that she is hungry/thirsty. I haven’t opened the balcony door for a month because I don’t want to scare her (it’s an old door , and it makes a terrible sound when you close or open it )

Also ,I’m afraid that the weather is too hot for her there . 

What should I do ? How can I help her ?

Should I give her water and bird food? In my country we are still in quarantine so I can’t buy bird food at the moment. Can I give her bread crumbs instead? I’m afraid that she’s hungry because I never saw her leaving the nest . Also I’m not sure if there are eggs in the nest .

    I'd let her nest there, you might be able to bond and leave food with her.

    Fortunately nature isn’t quarantined and she’ll fend for herself, returning to the nest annually for some as it provides safety and shelter.
