I believe some migrate and some stay in the area.


Do a search for dove migration on Google and you will see all sorts of interesting stuff.

Birds hatched in the south stay in the south, no reason to go north. Birds hatch up north migrate south during the winter for food, then go back home in summer. I'm applying logic, it could be wrong.

Oh I know, been hunting them darters since I was 11, now umm, 57. Haha. Just seems that over the years it seems they hang around longer and longer. Wonder if the guys that make the rules really know it. scratch

What gets my goat is the majority around the house are white-wings and we hardly get any white-wings where we hunt.

Mostly have collared doves. If I see or hear mourning doves they seem to be on their way someplace else.

Central Texas has a whitewing population that could rival Mexico. I could limit out in one or two shots in my backyard right now with a skeet choke.

Wasn't there a story on here during the season about a banded dove that was shot? The bird was something like 12-15 years old and came from way up North?

Yep. Birds have wings so that they can migrate.

So if something doesn't have wings it can't migrate?

Not trying to hijack the thread, but I am a tech for a large Check Cashing store and I was at a store on Wednesday installing a new terminal for time entry and just as I bent over to pick up the box it comes in there was this loud WHAM right into the plate glass window in front of me. As I looked up I caught something bouncing off the window and hitting the ground. Well I took a better look and it was a Eurasian dove that had smacked the glass trying to get away from a falcon. Anyway the bird was DOA and the falcon just looked at it then at me and kind of shrugged and flew off looking for lunch else where.
