also commonly known as:

*mourning doves have a distinctive call sound which lends to their name; their soft, drawn-out cooing sound like laments of sadness. when taking off, their wings make a sharp whistling or whinnying.

 

they are generally a monogamous species (not a common trait in wild species).

 

both parents incubate and care for their young. taking turns warming the eggs and foraging for food to feed once the eggs have hatched.
