Day 236: Mourning Dove

“The mournful cooing of the Mourning Dove is one of our most familiar bird sounds. From southern Canada to central Mexico, this is one of our most common birds, often abundant in open country and along roadsides. European settlement of the continent, with its opening of the forest, probably helped this species to increase. It also helps itself, by breeding prolifically: in warm climates, Mourning Doves may raise up to six broods per year, more than any other native bird.” To read more click here

  1. That’s a beautiful picture of such a sweet bird. I have them out back all the time, and they appreciate birdseed I put on the ground. Their cooing is such a soothing peaceful sound.
