A few weeks back I saw a courting dove couple outside my window where I work on the top floor of a building. Last week I went to Helsinki and walking by the open water in central Helsinki I saw more courting doves. I have read up on doves and now know that the male bows and dances for his chosen mate and so did this male as well. He is the big guy in the picture. He was very entertaining and I hope he is successful in his courting. More animal pictures at Camera Critters and Saturday’s Critters and more bird pictures at The BIRD D’Pot and Wild Bird Wednesday.
