Question:
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.


Replies:
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. J. Elliott
