Really, he’s not sad!

My daughter calls them Morning Doves because, “they always sing in the morning daddy!” It’s hard to disagree while looking into her big brown eyes but, Mourning Doves are thus named because of the male’s mournful call. However mournful it may sound to us though, to a female dove it’s the avian equivalent of Barry White’s “Can’t get enough of your love, babe!” So next time you hear a male Mourning Dove cooing, think of love not sorrow.
