If your life is for the birds, you might as well share it with them. Let's talk birding in Southern California.

Mourning dove's coo coo signals the start of nesting season
I heard the advertising call of a mourning dove on Feb. 1. It seems a little early, but a male was perched on the peak of the neighbor's roof cooing in his mournful sounding way. A female flew up to meet him and he humped over to her with his neck flared out. She immediately flew away.
Spring isn't far away. Watch for nesting behaviors this month.
