The Mourning Dove is a species of dove that is widespread over North America. They have a muted plumage of grey and brown feathers. Mourning Doves are named for their familiar, sad-sounding call, "ooh ooh ooh."
Mourning Doves can be found in a wide variety of North American habitats, from field to desert to suburbia and urban areas.
Mourning Doves are extremely abundant, able to breed up to six times a year with a clutch size of two eggs incubated in a flimsy nest typical of most dove species.
