audio - listen to a mourning dove sing

The title of my book Song of the Mourning Dove was in part inspired by the haunting call of a mourning dove. The mourning dove also plays a role in the story.


Here are some audio samples so you can hear their lamenting cry for yourself:

The story also includes a passage about the song of a whippoorwill.
