Wait a while to find out what it sounds like when they cry!

A Mourning Dove will eat just about any seed. Black Sunflower seeds are a good all around choice, but you will have to be prepared for a mess of hulls underneath the feeder.

For cryin' out loud DON'T FEED the d*mn doves. All these PETA type folks are turning doves into an urban species by feeding/watering. Where I live the best place to hunt dove during September is the local city park where yup-scale trendies put massive amounts of seed out to draw doves out of the country. Dove are a wild migratory game bird. Attempts at domestication should be punishable.

Haha everyone. Dont think I am just some city-dweller, that is turning soft on you all. [BD] I like birds, I have two of my own. I would eat them if I had too. The bird is nesting right out my front door. Feel sorry for the thing, I only see one there sitting on it, looked around for the second, did not see anything I added a poll for some fun c-rock

Why not leave it alone? Let nature take its course.

I've always got mourning doves feeding on your typical bird seed in all [b]five[/b] of my bird feeders in my yard. They are great to watch, they sound pretty nice. When we first moved to our present home and I began feeding the birds, Miz Hun would always swear to me that she heard an owl. Even late into the morning. I had to drag her outside to show her that it was mourning doves that were making the sound. Once I saw a white-tailed prairie hawk scream down onto a mourning dove sitting atop one of my feeders. The hawk took the mourning dove into my neaighbor's yard and spent about an hour absolutely devouring that dove. When the hawk was finished, there was nothing left of the dove but a greasy gray patch on my neighbor's grass. Eric The(AccessoryToMurder)Hun[>]:)]

I've heard Doves are quite fond of lead. [50] Keving67

Dove's don't taste that good, just watch'em and give them some bird seed. I get a whole tree of them right next to my window every spring. The only bad part is when they hatch, the mass volume of tiny squeeks is unbelievable. Now that I have a sound machine, they don't wake me up at the crack of dawn anymore.

Well don't kill it yet! If it is building a nest, you'll be eating omelettes soon. Then and only then do you fricassee it. [:D]

Absolute heresy!! Dove in the frying pan is one of God's Own Breakfasts. Maybe a dozen or so very lightly battered or rolled in bacon with a jalapeno pepper or a crawfish inside. Pure Heaven. If I get to choose my last breakfast it's gonna be doves.

If they are nesting, they probably arent going to be eating seed, they will have young to feed and that means insects, leave them alone and they should clear up a lot of pests and give you the enjoyment of them being there.

What time should I be there and should I bring a salad or a pie?

As a man of honor and taste you recognise dove as a breakfast entree. Other fowl are appropriate for consumption at the dinner table. In keeping with heritage and tradition I would say a plate of fried grits would be most appreciated.

I'd leave the Doves alone unless you are hungry.

Hmmm, Texican Dove! Sounds pretty good. Here in Dixie we just fry'em up with some corn flour and serve'em with grits. Good Eatn'!!!!
