As a kid we called these turtle doves. I have since learned that they are mourning doves and I was always told that they pair up and mated for life with their partners, I don’t know if that part is true?
In a world with billions of trees I have always wondered how when one flies off for food or what ever how they ever meet up again.
My wife Dorothy, AKA “Thea” and I have one of those silly things that soul mates do, when ever we see a pair of doves we name them Thea-dovea and Lonnie Pigeon. No one ever accused us of being the sharpest knifes in the drawer.
I’ve had more birds on here lately than dogs,
Thea-dovea’s soul mate, Lonnie Pigeon
