What Happens to White Doves After They’re Released?

white dovesIt may surprise you to learn that doves and pigeons are actually a part of the same species. While homing and rock pigeons often have a reputation as a dirty bird, they’re quite clean and extremely useful in symbolic releases. This is due to their impeccable ability to find their way home. While scientists still don’t know exactly how homing pigeons’ built-in GPS works, there’s been research pointing to the iron cells in their beaks and the proteins in their retinas as potential causes.

Once a pigeon or white dove is released, it may look like it’s flying away — but there’s no cause for concern. The birds’ built-in GPS kicks in, and it’s actually flying toward home base. Generally, dove release companies keep their birds in cozy outdoor lofts on their property. The released birds will fly safely home, and continue to live in comfort and safety.
