Mourning Dove in tree

Pair of Mourning Dove resting on trail

Mourning Dove are very common and sometimes seen around bird feeders, frequently on the ground below the feeder eating what falls. Their call is a very identifiable and soft cooo-coo-coo.  Apparently they are fast and agile in flight, able to fly close to 50 miles per hour. And yet, when I observe them on the ground or flying around a feeder they seem very clumsy, almost always ending up on the ground below the feeder.
