Mourning Dove

One of the various feathered creatures we have inhabiting our yard are the pretty, gray mourning doves. They have various spotted markings, and are a welcome addition to the wildlife around Douglas County. These pleasant birds have a soothing, yet mournful "ooh OOH ooh ooh" sound when they sing. I will try to capture their song with my audio recorder, and if successful, will post it to this blog.

This particular dove was enjoying the aspen trees in the front yard when I snapped its picture.
