    has anyone here had a dove as a pet? Is there anything 'special' i should know? I am watching it for someone, possibly indefinately....

    It does the cooing thing...does that mean it is male?

    I'm only use to my budgies..this new big clumsy thing keeps looking at me like he wants to peck my eyes out or something..

    marinate in lemon juice, garlic, and worcestshire and grill. indirect heat. it won't take long.

By spiracle on Thursday, June 15, 2006 - 02:45 pm:

    i think he's kinda old..i don't like the gamey taste...but then i guess that is what the garlic is for eh?

    marinading covers up many sins. cook in "wet heat" to keep moist.

    all doves coo. males have a particular type of rapid coo during mating season.

By Nate on Thursday, June 15, 2006 - 03:16 pm:

    maybe he wants to mate with you?

    eat him. we could start a "spiracle eats the dove" pool. i'll put a $1 in.

    mate with me..pausible..

    i bought a "serious" book on raising birds it actually discussed birds masturbating on their toys and owner's hands..

    my birds go BACK in the cage ASAP when they start to get *that* look in their eyes...

    droopy...it leans really far over with it's butt in the air and then lets out a cooo...so probably female? don't cats do that when they are in heat?

    I love watching and listening to the mourning doves in the morning. When I remember to fill the birdfeeders, the sparrows and cardinals make a total mess of those, and the doves sit on the ground underneath them, happily picking up whatever's dropped.

By Dougie on Thursday, June 15, 2006 - 07:57 pm:

    Are robins strictly carnivores? Come to think of it, I've never seen any eating at our birdfeeders.

    had to leave for work right after posting.

    the only thing i can say, spiracle, is that there is something called the "bow coo", where a male bows his head down (perhaps bringing his butt up?) and lets out a coo. it's a mating ritual. the dove wants your body.

    this makes me think of something: when i'm in the hill country around austin in the springtime, i hear what i think may be mating calls of doves. it's when i'm in my family's old farmhouse out in the country, and it always happens at dusk - a long, sustained, oscillating, incredible ethereal coo. any of you other texas dwellers know what i'm talking about? might be quail, for all i know.

    Ugh. Dirty, dirty birds with their tiny reptile brains. I will never keep a bird as a pet.

By Czarina on Friday, June 16, 2006 - 10:26 am:

    You should never have said that.Now they will be targeting you,to peck your eyes out.

    Robins are mainly carnivores, but switch to berries in the winter.

By spiracle on Friday, June 16, 2006 - 12:03 pm:

    droopy..maybe prairie chickens?

By droopy on Friday, June 16, 2006 - 12:24 pm:

    i don't think so. the prairie chicken mating call is called "booming". what i hear is not a boom. i'll have to ask the people who live down there.
