We have Mourning Doves on PEI. Note the spelling. Some people say morning dove. Their name comes from the mourning sound they make – I find it quite sad myself – I think they’re crying.
For all I read that they are strong flyers, I have never seen one in my bird feeders. They are always foraging on the ground for the seeds the others have scattered about.
I really enjoy seeing them in my back yard I hope you have a chance to enjoy them also.
The weeds are calling again this morning. See you soon.
