When we find a dove during our walks and I identify it, I am occasionally asked “Why do they call it a Morning Dove? Is it usually seen in the morning?”
In fact, these lovely birds are called Mourning Doves because of their mournful cooing. In this video, the coo starts around 0.15 seconds.
We saw and heard several Mourning Doves this morning.

Handle a book as a bee does a flower,
extract its sweetness but do not damage it. – John Muir (1838–1914)
