Wisconsin's Official Symbol of Peace

Wisconsin designated the lovely mourning dove (Zenaidura macroura corolinensis linnaus) as the official state symbol of peace in 1971 (the American robin is Wisconsin's state bird).

Mourning doves make soft, coo-ing calls that sound like laments. All State Birds
