White-winged Dove Arrival in Tucson 2007

On March 9, 2007, I heard my first few White-winged Doves (Zenaida asiatica) for the year. Rick Wright at Aimophila Adventures had them show up at his Tucson house on March 7th. I'm not sure when the main migratory wave will arrive, but White-winged Doves are harbingers of 90 °F (32.2 °C) plus temperatures, so if they all show up early, we may be looking at a warm spring.
