Mourning Dove

Zenaida macroura

Description:

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. (Cornell)

Habitat:

Light woods - Minnesota Zoo
