Hello Everyone,
I had a tailless Mourning Dove under my feeders a few minutes ago.  I was
wondering if anyone had seen another Mourning Dove like this recently.  It
appears that it lost its tail a while ago because it is all healed. The
bird was eating and was able to fly normally.  It was just strange to see
this bird missing  large part of its body.  The link below is a picture I
took of the bird.
