White-winged Dove. This is the most common bird in our backyard. We've had as many as 20 at one time, and one pair is currently nesting atop one of our covered patio pillars. They let the sparrows (and squirrels...grrr) knock food out of the feeders, then pick it up off the ground. They make very pleasant and peaceful neighbors.
Mourning Doves. Mourning Doves often match their open-country surroundings. They’re delicate brown to buffy-tan overall, with black spots on the wings and black-bordered white tips to the tail feathers. Year round
