These Mourning Doves were photographed in a Carrollton subdivision. Mourning Doves are our most common dove, and there was a time when they might be the only dove you would ever see in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. But things have changed over the last 10 to 15 years. Sometime during that period both White-winged Doves and the invasive Eurasian Collared-dove moved into our area. Both are thriving here and both have growing populations! I have included pictures of these two species of dove below to help give you a better impression of their differences.
