I love Doves, and for the time being, can let them have their own section on this site. While I like most kinds
of Birds, I find Doves to be special.
Mourning Dove in Chinaberry Tree.
Mourning Doves on bird bath. Sometimes in the evening, they group up like this. While I see some around all
year, for some reason, they are much less numerous in the late fall into the winter.
White Wing Dove in Chinaberry Tree. These are occasional visitors here, and when they show up is unpredictable.
Common Ground Dove. These look like miniature Mourning Doves, but are a totally different species and have a very
different coo. I see them more from mid spring to mid fall, but they can occasionally show up anytime. Habitat
destruction is reducing their numbers.
