    Beginning this past spring (2009), I started seeing these guys every day on my way to and from work along Prairie Ave. which runs through the rural north end of Post Falls.  You could count on multiple individuals (up to 8 one day) at the intersection of Prairie and Chase Rd, with a couple more near Prairie and McGuire Rd. a mile to the west.  As the breeding season ensued, the birds began to spread out along Prairie and by June there were 6 to 7 pairs fairly evenly distributed from just east of Chase Rd., to just west of McGuire; my high count was 13 individuals one morning.  In addition, there was a pair in town near the baseball fields at Spokane & 21st Streets; probably another breeding pair.  With summer wearing on, though, I’d start to only see a few singles a day but they were always near the same spots; probably on territory.  Then by mid-September, a couple of days would go by and I wouldn’t see any.  By the end of September, they seemed to disappear all together; I didn’t see a one – where the hell did they go?  Then last Thursday (5 Nov.’09), voila, they reappeared in force – 10 together in one small deciduous tree near the intersection of Prairie and McGuire!  I suspect they have gathered to ride out the winter in a communal roost, probably in one of the conifer “windrows” somewhere nearby; saw one today in the same area which prompted this post.  Given most of my observations are along essentially a single transect which indicates 15-20 birds over about a mile and a half, I suspect the total number of doves in the area may be as high as 30-40 individuals.  All in all, it has been fun to watch this unfold.  I hope some of you have had the chance to bump into these guys out there.
