The Mourning Dove is common (even abundant) whose range includes all of the United States and much of the southern parts of Canada.
They are year round residents in Arizona, and at The Azure Gate you can typically find 50 or more at any point during the day. They nest here from March through August. And those nests can be anywhere: cactus, window ledges, carports, trees etc.
