Abstract
This report consolidates information on techniques by which doves can be captured, especially during preseason and postseason banding periods. Methods include nestlying capture, bait trapping, nest trapping, mist netting, canon and rocket projection netting, and oral anesthetics. Construction plans are for the most commonly used types of bait and nest traps, including the Kniffin collapsible trap, probably the most useful bait trap design for much of the United States. Conditions under which various capture techniques may be used are discussed. Sex and age criteria are reviewed and the new banding codes of the Bird Banding Laboratory are explained as they relate to mourning doves. A selected bibliography includes references to capture methods, banding, and sex and age determination. Although written to apply to continental dove banding, much of the information should be applicable to the capture and banding of other columbids.
Banding plays an extremely important role in the management of the mourning dove, the most important single migratory game bird species in North America in terms of hunter harvest.
