Mourning Dove

Mourning Doves are sleek, gray-brown birds with long pointed tails and black dots on their wings.  The male has a gray crown and iridescent sides of neck.  The female is evenly brown on head and neck. Mourning Doves are found year-round throughout the United States and Mexico except in Northern Minnesota, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Utah where they are seen during the summer months.  Mourning Doves are common at feeders, feeding on scattered seed, or taking seeds from trays and hoppers.  Mourning Doves eat most grain seeds including Sunflower Hearts, Nyjer® Thistle, Millet, Milo and Cracked Corn.
