Mrs. Sparrow collecting feathers

Mrs. Sparrow came 6 or 7 times to collect dove feathers. My doves always fight over seeds and pull each other’s feathers out.

Mother and baby dove eating suet and need feather ID

Mother and baby dove eating suet. The baby clung to the suet cage and was swinging around. What a silly baby dove.

The feather was found at Paul D Rushing’s Chain of Lakes when we were going to visit the (empty) mockingbird nest. It is a blackish brownish white feather. It was about 5” long and pointy.

Need Feather ID!

Found this feather in my backyard. Any ID suggests of what it is? Possibly Mourning Dove? Not a Blue Jay. The feather is blackish gray with a white tip. About 5” tall.
