Oriental Turtle Dove making a heart with its wings
Awww... doves are so Valentines, aren't they? Soft, pure symbols of love.
And who hasn't seen the sweet turtle doves nestling together cozily?
...are another name for pigeons.
...which have been characterized, not by me, as "rats with wings"!
So why do "doves = love" but "pigeons = pests"?
