Eurasian Collared Doves are crazy.  These guys were trying to mate in January when the weather was 10 degrees.





At first I thought they were just flapping around and one was trying to steal the other’s perch. ┬áBut no, this is pretty definitive.







I guess you have to do something to stay warm in the cold.

    This is what’s going on in my back yard – all day. The male mourning doves are attempting to make a porn movie outside of my window. The girls are not having anything to do with it fortunately. The temps are still too cold for baby doves.

    This girl was very willing. Crazy! Who wants to sit on a nest in January?

    I wonder how that works. Can they delay egg laying? Recreation in the commonest sense of the word?

    I think it must be for fun. :-)
