Abstract

Mourning dove (Zenaidura macroura) nesting success in artificial and natural nests was investigated in 1974 on seven study areas in central Minnesota. Nesting success in artificial nests was significantly greater (P<0.05) than that in natural nests. Of 69 nesting attempts in artificial nests, 60.9% (42) were successful. Of 224 nesting attempts in natural nests, 44.2% (99) were successful. Sixty-nine nesting attempts were made in 59 of the 203 artificial nests installed. This represents a 34.0% rate of utilization.
