A Good Match
Mourning Doves often match their open-country surroundings. They're delicate brown to buffy-tan overall, with blocks of spots on the wings and black-bordered white tips to the tail feathers.
Mourning Doves fly fast (up to 55 MPH) on powerful wingbeats, sometimes making sudden accents, descents and dodges.
The Mourning Dove is also called the 'Turtle Dove' or 'Rain Dove'. They eat mostly seeds.
Its plaintive woo-OO-oo-oo-oo call gives the bird its name.

GOOD NEWS: George's eye pressure is down.
To all in Isaac's path my thoughts and prayers are with you...
