Mourning Doves

This afternoon it was especially hot and humid here in Moncton. Our backyard was full of birds early after lunch, so I spent about an hour sitting outside shooting video of a lot of different kinds of birds.

These two are a pair of Mourning Doves.

The almost constant chattering sound is another type of bird (I'll post clips of those later).

These Doves have a very pleasing sound that you can hear a couple times during the clip, and their wings make a very distinct sound when they fly.
