I'm just wondering what Mourning Doves eat, and if you could recommend a good wild bird info site?

Mourning Doves like a variety of grains. I find that Black Oil Sunflower Seeds put on a platform feeder or spread on the ground is the best way to attract Mourning Doves. I have several that eat the seeds underneath my feeders that fall from the feeders.

I use about.com's Birding and Wild bird site and forums for a lot of my online birding. You join the site for free and then there are encyclopedias of free information about wild birds available to you.

I also use Google Web Search and Google Image Search for a lot of my information and Google Earth gives you detailed aerial and satellite photographs of LITERALLY EVERY square inch of the Earth's surface. I even found my house and could recognize my car in the driveway.

Here is About.com's Wild Bird section:
