Love birds in Taos?
UFØ

We live in New Mexico, but have not seen birds like this before. Dove-like, but extremely pudgy. They were just hanging out, a couple, on an overhead wire over our patio at El Pueblo Lodge in Taos 9/28/15.


If it is a dove, are they unusual in New Mexico? Thanks!

Birds Chilling in Taos
by: John

I second the motion that these are likely Mourning Doves.

I was out for a walk the past several days in Minnesota and noticed a group of Doves like this also perched in small flocks high up on power line wires near a large pond.

Possibly you are seeing migrating birds in your area that you might not ordinarily see at other times of year.

I'm from Ohio and we have a lot of Mourning Doves. This is definitely some kind of a dove and yes, he sure is pudgy! lol This website might have some information to help you identify what kind of dove it is: http://www.nmbirds.org/?p=455
