Eared doves' wingbeats as the birds erupt from late-afternoon feeding fields. "Imagine hearing the subdued yet audible roar of more than a million olling in waves across harvested soybean and peanut fields, the doves accumulate in locust-like swarms, then join undulating flight lines headed for the nearby roost. Like spokes in a wheel, incoming flights approach to refill the staging and watering areas, then depart for their nighttime haunts. Words cannot do justice to such an awe-inspiring spectacle of nature."
