More signs of avian spring

Yesterday, two Red-shouldered Hawks flew over my house in Old Jefferson, one of them calling loudly and stridently.  One was barely over the trees, and the other was pretty high up, more or less overhead the lower bird; the high bird traced the low bird's flight line and posture, gliding with wings set in the same position- presumably a courtship interaction.

Then, this morning, my first singing Mourning Dove of the year- also on my street.
