Two Dove in Preliminary Mating Ritual
March 21, 2012 5:35pm CST
I think two dove were in a preliminary mating ritual outside my window today. The were preening and "snuggling" and taking little pecks at each other. Also, they were puffing out their feathers; one was doing this more than the other. After a while they left and the robin who usually hangs out there was back; I don't know if the robin ran them off or what. The robin does seem to be a little territorial with that area. Anyway the whole thing was interesting to notice when ever I passed by the window.
