New Jersey Backyard

Woke up yesterday morning to find a group of about a dozen of these large-breasted birds with proportionately small heads and a long tail. Suburban Southern New Jersey backyard attached to wetlands. I have never seen this type of bird, and we get quite a few naturally, and attract others with suet. These guys were nowhere near a food source, and appeared to be pecking at the ice.

They are most definitely either a dove or a pigeon. The Mourning Dove sounds like it is moaning or crying.
