Mourning Dove on a fire escape on the Lower East Side in New York City.
I made a post about the odd bird calls I have been hearing outside of my window since last summer a few days ago. I finally caught a glimpse of the bird(s) who have been serenading me this afternoon! It appears that they are a pair of doves and after a bit of googling, they could be mourning doves. I couldn’t quite get a good enough shot of the other one since she/he was hiding under an air conditioner but they are quite charming.
This is what the cooing sounds like: Mourning Dove Coo (it’s about 17 seconds in when he does it).
