She cines every night for the last 2 months and leavesjn the morning. I leave food but its never touched. She tried to come inside one day but I closed the window. I heard alot of cooing outside the window this morning. It was raining. It makes me sad 😔 to see her alone there like that 😢. Any suggestionsThat looks like a Mourning Dove. They visit my deck almost every day, along with all the other neighborhood bird visitors. They are in the same Family as pigeons but a little smaller and more sleek. This one is puffed up.
Thanks for replying 🙂.I'm in NYC so its cold here but nothing extreme soo far.I feel honored to have her/him there.just wish I could provide more..are they usually solitary birdsShe/he is a Mourning Dove. They make those cooing sounds which sound mournful (hence the name) but are not. She probably finds that your ledge is a safe place to spend the night. I don’t know what your climate is like but they mostly migrate in the winter but some stay behind. We have them here too. I think she is perfectly fine. It is that cooing that often makes them sound so sad. They say when you hear one, it makes you think of lost loved ones. So true.
