Feeding ecology of mourning doves zenaida macroura in southeastern new mexico usa

Feeding ecology of mourning doves zenaida macroura in southeastern new mexico usa

Southwestern Naturalist 31(1): 33-38

On 1-2 September 1979, mourning doves (Zenaida macroura) were collected in southeastern New Mexico to determine the amounts and kinds of food items ingested, to ascertain whether foods were selected in proportion to those available, and to evaluate sexual, age, and temporal variation in feeding ecology. Prairie sunflower (Helianthus petiolaris) was the dominant food item. Foods were not taken in proportion to plant densities at the study site. Discriminant analyses revealed no consistent differences between sexes, but there were some differences between ages and time of collection.
