Mourning Doves

Although we have several types of birds in
our yard, the most common and one of my
favorites is the Mourning Dove. If you
live in the Continental United States,
it is found in every state and is very
recognizable by it's call. Some might
confuse it with a pigeon, but they're
brown in color and usually a little
smaller. The ones in our back yard seem
to have no fear of me and it's nice to
hear them calling throughout the day. If
