    Um, so we found a mourning dove near the parking lot. A smaller dead/ripped-up bird was next to it (attacked by a cat?) and when I approached the dove, it tried to run away from me. I thought that it had a broken wing or something, or maybe the cat attacked it after killing the smaller bird. So...

    We have some Dove's that nest right under our back patio overhang. We heard noises in the back, and checked to find that the dove was on the ground with lots of feathers around it. It is possible that a chunk was taken out. A cat or raccoon would have to be pretty nimble to get up there, but...
