Just thought I'd mention that my dad e-mailed me in mid-Sept (with photo) about a Mourning Dove taking up residence in their yard/neighborhood in SW Seattle in August, 3 weeks before. First time they'd seen one (lived there over 40 years) and it had been lingering mostly around their house since its arrival. Having never seen one in Western WA myself (lived all my life here) I found it interesting, since I'd thought (the few times I thought about it) that they were only east of the mountains. A check in the bird book and on-line disabused me of that notion, however, it is still not a regular event in the Puget Sound Basin, as far as I can tell. Am interested to hear what folks have to say on this.
