Classic Mourning Dove Cooing call. This Mourning Dove sings its song from a power pole for awhile. If you listen carefully you will hear another distant Mourning Dove calling in between his calls - not sure if they are communicating. Although not particularly loud - the call carries for a long distance. The sound comes from the puffed up lungs and the Dove puts its whole body into the call. You will also hear at least half a dozen other birds calling at the same time - notably an Eastern Towhee that is always showing off and cramping the understated Dove's style!
