Tail on a Mourning Dove seen under one of my feeders. I wonder if the long gray tail feathers were lost or molted and these are the under feathers.

    I also have a mourning dove with white tail feathers like the one above.
    How are these different?

    So do I ….he has been coming to my feeders for more than a year, always just by himself, seemingly having no mate or buddiies, I feel really badlly for him.

    I have dozens of mourning doves at my feeders but this white-tailed one is unusual. He/she seems to get along with the others though.
