Thanks for the response.

We have had the nuthatches here routinely through the winter.

This bird was the size of a catbird or a robin and was mistaken for a catbird until the white was seen and the song heard.The song was heard as the bird was opening it`s mouth.

The song while still the cooing sound was somewhat less mournful.

GREY BIRD LIKE A CATBIRD BUT WITH A WHITE BREAST NEW

What you describe seems like the white breasted Nuthatch but they don't make a soft coo, not even close. The Mourning Dove makes a soft coo but they don't look like what your visual description. Is it possible that you heard a different bird?
