20 March 2014 – Mourning Dove

I guess I spoke too soon yesterday:  There was a beautiful, adult Mourning Dove dead along the south wall of the NRC this morning.  Mourning Doves nest on and near the Noble Research Center, and I had a live bird very near this location yesterday.

I have a photo but the bird sustained a rather gruesome injury so I’ll not post it.  I left the bird in place (after moving it about 1m out of the middle of the sidewalk) to conduct a removal trial.
