If you ever are to visit Paradise Valley in Arizona you must stay at the Hermosa Inn. It is a beautiful Inn nestled in the most quiet section of the area. The grounds are amazing with the desert landscape. There are beautiful ranch style and hacienda villas which have beautiful private patios. There is so much beauty there, however, what I remember most is the mourning doves all around. The cooo-ing of these doves is the most beautiful and peaceful sound to me. When you are on the patio relaxing and listening to the doves it feels like the rest of the world is asleep — and before you know it, the doves have cooo-cooo-ed enough where you may find you drift off into a sweet slumber.
The Mourning Dove is a member of the dove family. The bird is also called the American Mourning Dove or Rain Dove, and formerly was known as the Carolina Pigeon or Carolina Turtledove. It is one of the most abundant and widespread of all North American birds. Its plaintive woo-oo-oo-oo call gives the bird its name. The wings can make an unusual whistling sound upon take-off and landing, and the bird is a strong flier, capable of speeds up to 55 mph.
Here is my Mourning Dove Spirit Woman. Her energy and spirit is one of quiet, calmness, peace, and elegance. Her appearance is more Royal than earthy like my other spirit dolls. I can’t help but hear the mourning doves peaceful coo-coo-ing when I look at her.
