The last few days the Eurasion-collared Doves have been very actively calling around the neighborhood. A pair is feeding regularly in the backyard again. Larry Lade spotted them on what may be a nest across the street when he was here the other day. I have not seen them there again yet however.

  This isn't at all as exciting as the Inca Dove
report at Springfield's MDC Nature Center but it is somewhat related:

When I came home from work just now (Friday) there
was a couple of Mourning Doves copulating on the patio picnic bench. MODO's 
have been cooing for several weeks now here in Joplin and also Neosho.

Plus, also in Joplin today , there was a broken egg shell of a Rock Pigeon 
that may have rolled off of a ledge of a downtown building. My first "egg 
shell" of the year.

Rock Pigeons nest nearly year around. I have observed active nests for all 
months of the year
here in Joplin except November - including one on a CBC a few years back.

Doves and pigeons, in general, Family Columbidae, tend to have a long 
nesting season.

Good birding, Larry H. Joplin (sw) MO.
