Mourning Dove. I now know how this species was named for I am mourning the loss of my poop free deck. Apparently the fence is no longer the gathering spot for these creatures. And although the droppings on the fence rail were not nice either, they were further away from the house, could be sprayed off by a hose to a section of the yard not commonly used, and were not visible from the kitchen and living room windows.
And no, I don't think they fit in an Easy Bake Oven (see previous post).
