The Mourning Dove is a very common and permanent resident of Florida.  During the annual Christmas Bird Counts, they are usually found in every count circle in Florida.  However, a few of the birds migrate.  Some birds banded in northern states have been found in Florida.  Likewise, a few birds banded in Florida have been found in Cuba and Mexico.
