Critter of the Day: Good Mourning

We had a new bird show up at our feeding station in May that had us pretty excited. It was clearly a dove, but not one I’d ever seen before.

My daughter did some research and identified it as a mourning dove, and mentioned that we’ve been hearing them many times.

This was when I discovered that a hooting owl sound I remember hearing throughout my childhood growing up here, was not an owl at all, but a mourning dove!
