Are you sure they are Mourning Doves? Collared Doves are taking over and pushing the natives out in my area. There must be a hundred of them around my place, I knock them off with a high powered airgun. They are an invasive species that have occupied most of North America now.I think Dragonflies are really cool. Lately, I've been observing the Black Tailed Bumblebees that are nesting around my place. Also been wondering about the sudden influx of Mourning Doves in my area. There never used to be very many here, but now they've taken over. Coo Coo Coo all the time driving me nuts!
