Description

Columbiformes—doves and pigeons—fly well enough to get into trouble, yet not well enough to get out of it. They are also genetically flexible, which has led to a population of many hundreds of domesticated breeds. These two features have combined to produce great diversity among doves and pigeons, both in physical characteristics and habitat. We will explore the diversity of our North American species and observe mourning and white-winged doves in nesting season. Students are encouraged to bring their own binoculars. As part of the training, a field trip is included and transportation is provided.
