Daily Postcard: Mourning Dove Samples Seeds In White Rock

Daily Postcard: A Mourning Dove spotted Wednesday sampling the bird seed available at a local residence in White Rock. A graceful, slender-tailed, small-headed dove that’s common across the continent. Mourning Doves perch on telephone wires and forage for seeds on the ground; their flight is fast and bullet straight. Their soft, drawn-out calls sound like laments. When taking off, their wings make a sharp whistling or whinnying. Source: allaboutbirds.org. Photo by Nancy Ann Hibbs
