Hello friends, this Mourning Dove is in front of
the bird feeder, this photo was shot in March 2013.

1/4000s f/7.1 ISO720 50mm (35mm eq:75mm).
The ISO720 here it is because I was in auto ISO.

« 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. Mourning Doves are the most frequently
hunted species in North America. »

Up it is wrote : « Mourning Doves are the
most frequently hunted species in North America. »
But not in the province of Québec where I live,
here in Québec, Dove hunting is prohibited, but instead
we have the grouses and woodcocks that we hunt.

Hello Asbed,
A great inflight shot of this pretty little Mourning Dove. We have many of these beautiful doves visit our feeders year round. I love hearing the whistling sounds they make as they fly overhead.
You have captured this one in fine fashion allowing us to see it's plumage in wonderful detail and natural colors. I love the way the sun seems to illuminate it's wing feathers. Well done!!
