I generally have a male and female that stay close to my house all year feeding on the ground on the seeds that the smaller birds have dropped. I've had up to a dozen in a flock sporadically come for feedings though.

Like an elegy, the mourning dove's sorrowful song evokes a lamentation for the loss of a dearly beloved. Even so, the mourning dove has been widely celebrated for its symbolical value.

Mourning Dove; so common that we see them all day long. Their song is easy to remember. Aunt Colleen and I used to use it with each other when we were children.
