Thanks to Steve Huggins post, Karen and I made our 6th visit to the cemetery Saturday late AM and got great looks at the dove feeding with a couple of MoDos under the feeders at the W side of the cemetery. A state bird for Kar and a new buddy bird for us. I saw the W-w Dove back on 7/9 but Karen was not able to go along for that 7/9 trip. So it's been hanging around Kaneville for over a month now.
For those into that type of list keeping, it's fairly easy to have a 4 dove day in Kaneville if you see the White-wing. MoDos, Rock Pigeons (by the grain elevator) and Eurasian Collared Doves are all findable in and around town and the cemetery.
There are likely 5 dove sp. around. We've also seen on a couple of our visits a bird we believe is a (non-countable) Ringed Turtle-Dove - similar in appearance but smaller and 'whiter' than a EuCoDo with all white undertail coverts. Regards Bob Fisher Downers Grove DuPage County
