I believe this is a mourning dove! It made the noise like one, and usually I saw them on the ground looking for food. This one however, stayed way up on top of the tree, and watched my every move.
This mourning dove had almost the same color as the branches. Although this tree looked as if they were budding, but it has been like this all winter long as we really didn't have the Michigan winter.
We had mostly gray weather, windy, rainy, and cold but not deep snow like other years. It maybe selfish of me to like "snow-less" winter, since it could signify an undesirable outcome of what we have done to the earth, but it still was a pleasant winter.
