I have been hearing these guys for a while before they actually made an appearance. At first I thought it was a pigeon, they even walk with that same head-bop syncopation. But Merlin says it is a mourning dove and the wing plumage doesn't match the pigeons around here.

These guys also just scrounge the knockoff. They are big enough that the cardinals don't try to bully them.
