Doves

Will the doves leave with cold weather? We had a good many doves last weekend but got a big cold front this week.. Will the doves stay here or do you think they will leave?

Typically a large storm front with strong winds and pelting rain can and will push doves out of an area as they seek quieter surroundings but some to most of them may return if there is ample food and roosting areas for them. Unless an arctic cold front comes through (not likely in the fall in MS) they normally do not vacate with a normal cold front although they may not fly as much.
