Just looked out the window at a bird feeder in the front yard, and danged if there isn't a white winged dove sitting there. Never seen one this far north (I'm east of Waco about 40 miles). I sure didn't know they came this far north.

I have consistently shot more whitewings than mourning dove in North Texas for the last 5+ seasons. Last year I bagged more collared/Eurasians than Ms and WWs combined.

Whitewings are everywhere around DFW. Even around Granbury and Stephenville. They're like pigeons, they stay near cities rather than in the country.

This is pretty accurate for Lubbock. At my feeder it's all whitewings and eurasians, but you go a mile out of the city to hunt and you'll get 90-95% mourning dove.

White wings do like the city. I hunt near Haskell each September and each year for the last 5 we shoot more and more WWs.

I've heard whitewings have been seen as far north as Minnesota but don't know if that's accurate or not

They have been sighted as far north as Alaska to Ontario, Maine, Newfoundland, and everywhere in between. Migratory.
A banded one was even recorded to have lived to 21 year old. Amazing.

That has been true for anywhere I hunt, north or south Texas. We call white wings "city dove"

The steady migration North is one of the reasons TP&W did away with the Whitewing stamp and created the overall State Migratory bird stamp.

they do get kind of jumpy during the season
