The haunting, owl-like “hoo-hoo-hoo” is becoming increasingly common in Prince Edward Island throughout much of the year. The mourning dove, a close relation of our imported pigeon, is showing up at feeders in large numbers, a result of more people providing winter food. They respond very well to cracked corn, either fed directly on the ground or on a platform feeder.
