Mourning Dove

Have you ever had a Mourning Dove wink at you? This one did along a cornfield near the southwest shore of Lake Byllesby, Goodhue County, on 6 November 2018. What gorgeous blue eye shadow! Mourning Doves breed from southern Canada to southern Mexico. In the United States, southern birds tend to be year-round residents, while northern ones migrate south in the winter. Most leave southern Minnesota; only a few attempt to survive our winter—usually near bird feeders or areas of leftover or stored grain.
