That's exactly what I was thinking!!! Isn't it amazing how animals separated by thousands of miles can look so similar!!! Beautiful captures!

Hmmm pigeons (akarodent of the sky)certainly aren't and around here neither are the mourning doves.

This is a description of the bird in Answers.com:

Species (Zenaida macroura[/i]) of pigeon (family Columbidae), the common wild pigeon of North America. They have long, pointed tails, and the sides of the neck are violet and pink. Their name comes from their call's haunting, mournful tone. Mourning doves are migratory; the northernmost populations migrate the farthest south. They are popular game birds.

I think it is migratory.
