    Happy Mother’s Day from New Mexico

    Mourning doves breed in all 50 states, southern Canada, Alaska, Mexico, and into Panama. Breeding starts in March and April. Courtship starts with the male cooing call while puffing out his throat, and bobbing his tail. The nesting site is chosen by the male. He gathers sticks, and bring them to the female, landing on her while she sits on the partly built nest. Although they seem to take great care, their nest is one of the flimsiest of all bird nests. The eggs can even be seen through the twigs. Often they will just use old nests from other birds such as robins.
