Artist's Description

Mourning Dove

Marana, AZ, Canon Powershot SX40HS, March 2013

Known for its mournful call, oowooo-woo-woo-woo

A common sight in open habitats south of the boreal forest from mountaintops to deserts,especially farmlands and suburbs. They feed on seeds, grasses and insects almost always on the ground.

This species breeds year-round in southern parts of its range. A very successful breeder producing up to 6 broods a year.

Wings produce a loud fluttering whistle as they take flight. Resembling a dog’s squeaky toy.
