  1. Texas Bird Family says:

    Hello Mr. Dove! This is how you tell male and female doves apart.

    The male doves have thicker necks, are bigger, and have longer tails, they also have gray feathers on top of their head. (Like the one above)

    The females have much thinner necks and no gray feathers on top of their heads. They have shorter tails and are smaller.

    Males also coo and puff out their necks to attract the female doves.
