My Sightings

Date Location Note
-There seems to be a lot fledglings lately, they must've had babies a couple weeks ago.
-A pair of babies with their parents in my garden. Very cute.
-A pair in my backyard. They were mating. Before copulating, they did some strange ritual where they bobbed their heads and 'kissed'. I have never seen a male mourning dove actually win over a female, surprised to see it happen.
-in my yard. a male chasing a female around. It was puffing out its neck and showing off its shiny spot. The female wasn't a fan and warded him off with her wings.
-they like the feeder, pretty coloration if you look close
