Ring necked dove.
They are abundant here, and a pair are now building a nest in one of my trees.

It's a dove. I'm not sure what type. It could be a mourning dove.

Charlie, with that dark slash on its neck, it's a ring-necked dove. Mourning doves don't have anything on their necks. They are uniformly grey.

All the time Addie! Out in the suburbs, we don't have pigeons, we have doves.

Same here, though we are slightly further west than Boston.

Honolulu has white doves. Almost as plentiful as city pigeons.

We have doves out here in the MA frontier, too. Mourning doves. I have yet to see one cry, so I don't know why they're considered "mourning".




I know, I know, it's because of the sound of their call.
