Mourning Dove

The Mourning Dove, Zenaida macroura, is very common in this area, probably due in part to the different grains that are grown around here.  We commonly see them by the dozons on powerlines and in the fields as well as at our feeders in the wintertime.   The wings produce a whistling sound on takeoff.
