Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! They truly are a pair of ‘love birds’.
Upon release the doves reunite as a flock and generally circle the area before beginning their journey home.
This has been a puzzle since the beginning of time. No one really knows. They’ve been known to find their way home from hundreds of miles away. A 10-year study carried out by Oxford University concluded that these birds use roads and freeways to navigate, in some cases even changing direction at freeway junctions. Other theories include navigation by use of the earth’s magnetic field.
Our doves fly up to 500 km a day at 40-60km per hour. The longest recorded flight in the 19th century took 55 days between Africa and England covering 7,000 miles!
No. Birds do not see well in the dark. They require adequate light for a safe flight and we care deeply about the safety and well-being of our birds. For evening events we provide white doves for display only.
The doves are quite used to rain as they fly year round. If the rain is very heavy, we will wait until it lightens up. However in extreme adverse weather conditions (heavy rain, thunderstorms, and heavy snowfall) we will provide you with a full refund.
