Population dynamics of mourning doves zenaida macroura banded in missouri usa

Population dynamics of mourning doves zenaida macroura banded in missouri usa

U S Fish & Wildlife Service Special Scientific Report-Wildlife (250): 1-20

Most mourning doves (Z. macroura) banded in eastern Missouri in 1968-1976 and recovered outside the state moved south-southeast into Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida and South Carolina. Most doves banded in central and western Missouri and recovered elsewhere moved south-southwest into Kansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas, Mexico and Central America. Several central Missouri doves moved southwest. About 3/4 of the 653 direct recoveries of mourning doves banded in Missouri during 1968-1976 were made in Missouri. Adults banded in Missouri were recovered in Missouri in significantly higher (P < 0.05) proportions (86%) than immatures (68%), and a significantly (P < 0.05) higher proportion of adult males (93%) than adult females (73%) was recovered in the State. Less than 7% of the Missouri harvest of banded doves consisted of doves from other states, primarily from states bordering Missouri on the east. The average direct recovery rate for doves of all ages was 3.02%. Recovery rates varied by age, sex, and year of banding. Immatures had a significantly higher (P < 0.05) direct recovery rate (3.30%) than adults (2.47%). The direct recovery rate for adult males was 2.56% and for females, 2.33%. The overall survival rate of Missouri male doves (46.7%) differed significantly (P < 0.05) from that of adult females (31.2%) banded in 1968-1976. The combined survival rate for adults (42.4%) and immatures (25.1%) differed significantly (P < 0.05). Hunting accounted for about 19% of immature mortality and 18% of adult mortality, 20% of adult male mortality and 14% of adult female mortality were due to hunting.
