Mourning dove

Mourning Dove, Ohio - Love the sound of their cooing in the morning, we have a nest just outside one window.

American Mourning Dove. I cared for a dove that had been shot by removing the pellet from her wing. She stayed with me for several months before returning her to her freedom. I hope to meet her again in heaven.

I generally have a male and female that stay close to my house all year feeding on the ground on the seeds that the smaller birds have dropped. I've had up to a dozen in a flock sporadically come for feedings though.

Adult morning doves - they like the bird seed in the pan on the ground but I've seen them at the feeder, too

The graceful mourning doves are our most friendly visitors. If you're very still they will get quite close to you. They usually hang around in pairs and you can hear their sad sounding call echoing through the woods.
