What do Mourning Doves Eat

Report as

Mourning Doves almost exclusively eat seeds. They do not scratch or dig for seeds they eat what is visible to them. they will rarely eat snails and insects. Seeds make up 99% of their diet. At feeders they are attracted to the widest range of seeds of any North American bird.

So what kind of Seeds? Sun Flowers or that white seed that is mostly in all bird food? I'm new to this and just put a 4x8x4 wire fence around the bird feeder because it was making my Dog's Sick and they'd eat the peanuts. So we fenced it in with real nice wire fence with decorative and the dove's are having a hard time upstanding how to get in and I'm afraid of losing them. I want to make a Plat Form 5' off ground where they can just come in an land on a Run Way kind of thing and then their food is higher and they can fly off easier. They seem to not or can't just flap their wings out of a 4x8x4 area??? That's like 4' ft x 8' ft. What's your thought to getting what it takes to bring back my Peach Color Doves come back to me??? I have very Beautiful pictures of my Doves. I feel Blessed and want my Doves Back!!! Thank you for your time. Bird Lover
