What is a "morning dove", a mourning dove that shows up in the a.m.?

I think it is any dove that shows up before noon... they don't have to be grieving!

They just have to sound like they are grieving. From what read, they are named for the mournful song...but, I also remember my dad saying that they mated for life and stayed mourning over a dead mate. I'm not sure if that is true or not.

Well, this shot is not nearly as spectacular as those of Sage and Viceroy,nor the bird as uncommon as those, but I did see it today and it definitely shows that even the uncommon can be spectacular. No matter how often I see them, I'll always stop to enjoy the beauty of a male Mallard.

Today I saw:-variety-066a.jpg

Mallards are beautiful birds. Thanks for sharing, Bulu.

For anyone interested in Peregrine Falcons, we have had an aggressive pefa removed from her nest site on the university campus. She was becoming too high a risk for UB and she is now at a rehab site, but will not be released.

Three days later a new falcon migrating through the area was attracted to the site and our tiercel (male) is working hard to make her commit. This gal is huge! You can keep up with the action on my sig link below.

The second photo looks like a black crowned night heron
