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.

The graceful mourning doves are our most friendly visitors. If you're very still they will get quite close to you.  They usually hang around in pairs and you can hear their sad sounding call echoing through the woods.
