"looks like a mourning dove explodes in mid flight"

That would be more fun than shooting them where they also less explode in mid flight. They aren't bad eating, fixed right, but they aren't so good that I would begrudge sharing with the hawk.

Doves build an embarrassingly poorly constructed nest. The young usually fall out before they can fly and wander around the farm bewildered for a few days. One year I cleaned out from around the lathe and discarded some long thin aluminum shavings. They showed up in the dove next. We speculated that the lazy bird hoped to build a permanent nest to save the trouble next year.
