Mourning Dove

Caught a Mourning Dove in the yard this morning. It is a graceful, slender-tailed, small-headed dove thatís common across the continent. Mourning Doves perch on telephone wires and forage for seeds on the ground; their flight is fast and bullet straight. Their soft, drawn-out calls sound like laments. When taking off, their wings make a sharp whistling or whinnying. Mourning Doves are the most frequently hunted species in North America.
