Doves and Mating
Name: Donna M.
Is is true when a dove loses its mate, it never mates
again? If not how long do they remain together? Thank you very much.
No, many birds will mate in a new season with their previous mate if they
are both still in the area, but for most birds courtship begins over again
each mating season and anything can happen.
