Resident mourning doves zenaida macroura in berkeley california usa

Resident mourning doves zenaida macroura in berkeley california usa

Journal of Wildlife Management 47(3): 780-789

On the basis of 42 band recoveries from 1184 mourning doves (Z. macroura) banded over an 8-yr period in Berkeley, California, the population appears to be nonmigratory. Dove deaths occurred largely in the proximity of the banding stations and most were attributed to collisions with automobiles, windows and wires and to predation by cats; few birds were shot. The adult mortality rate, computed from recapture data, was 48%, which closely approximates mortality observed in populations subject to hunting. Data were inadequate to calculate a juvenile mortality rate. The nonmigratory status of some doves that breed in central and southern North America, and northerly breeders that migrate far to the south in winter, raises a fundamental issue about management strategy.
