MDC welcomes participants in dove banding project

Kansas City, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is offering the public a chance to participate in research on mourning dove populations. Each summer, MDC employees trap doves and affix small identification bands. The doves are then released back into the wild. Band information returned by hunters and birders helps monitor dove populations. Scientists also track the popular gamebird’s migrations in Missouri and other states.
