White Doves are a type of pigeon. They are social birds that live in colonies. Peregrine falcons and hawks prey upon them. These birds make a cooing sound. They have a life span of up to 15 years.

Anatomy: The White Dove is from 12 to 14 inches (30 to 35 cm) long.

Diet: Like all pigeons, white doves eat mostly seeds. They drink by sucking up water (very few other birds do this).

Nest and Eggs: Male doves build shallow, saucer-like nests made of sticks and twigs. Nests are usually located on ledges, like seaside cliffs or window sills on skyscrapers. Females lay 1-2 white eggs in each clutch (a set of eggs laid at one time). Both parents incubate the eggs.
