The mourning dove (latin- Zenaida macroura) is a plumped body, long tailed, short legged, small headed, light brown dove that can be found anywhere except deep woods. They mate by flying in circles until it spots a female im which then they descend and approach them with a puffed out breast, bobbing head and loud calls.Their wings make a whistling noise when taking off and landing, they are one of the few birds on this planet that drink water by suction. Their favorite food is any type of seed and they are one of the most hunted birds both for sport and food. They usually migrate north in the spring and south in the fall, they migrate during the day in flocks at low altitudes. Their status is least concerned since they are all over the place in abundance.
