Mourning Dove

Bob took this photo of a mourning dove recently – he filled the bird feeder and then sat patiently on the porch snapping photos of each visitor. Mourning doves are named for their call, but I’ve never thought they sounded sad; the soft cooing sound seems peaceful and calming.

    Thanks. One of my very favorite birds. We have many of them around here. They coo to us all day long. Well, I guess they really coo to each other but I sure do enjoy the serenade. That is a great photo!

    We have two of these that have been hanging around the yard this summer, I like watching them, nice photo too.

      I grew up in Minnesota (Minneapolis ‘burbs) and we had a lot of these around. Their cooing always reminds me of those wonderful childhood summer days with no school.
