White Ringneck Dove vs White Homing Pigeon FAQ's

Wedding Love Doves


White homing pigeons are larger and stronger than the white ring neck doves. You can easily hold a white ring neck dove in one hand; you need two hands to hold a white homing pigeon.

White homing pigeons have been selectively bred over the centuries for their color and precise homing instinct. Whereas the timid white ring neck doves do not have a "homing instinct".

Ringneck Doves usually fly no more than a few feet away and land in the bushes, where they easily fall prey to cats and hawks and may also be hit by passing cars.  We urge the public not to use white ring neck doves for any dove release. They will not put n the showy display by Flying up into the sky and circling overhead as the properly trained White Homiing pigeon does, and they usually meet a horrible fate if let loose into the wild to fend for themselves.

A Bright White Flock of well trained White Homing Pigeons is much more visual than the smaller ringneck doves! These birds really know how to show off! Their bright white color and size allows them to be seen for miles as they flutter in the wind, swooping and soaring in the breeze as they fly home.

Homing pigeons need daylight to navigate safely, they cannot fly at night to find their way home. To ensure our Love Doves find their way home we required at least one hour of daylight prior to sunset for every release.

Like most birds, homing pigeons cannot navigate in inclement weather conditions such as heavy rain storms, extrememly heavy winds or hurricane conditions. A bright sunny day provides the best conditions for a beautiful and successful dove release, while allowing clear blue skies and plenty of day light to find their way home!.

When to Plan Your White Dove Release!

The time to release the White Wedding Doves during your ceremony is entirely up to you! There can be a lot of creativity in the timing and location of your release. Discuss this with your weding planner or the officiant that is performing your wedding vows. By including the professionals that are helping to coordinate your wedding, the dove release can be planned perfectly to fit your own unique dream. 

If you need ideas please ask us! We will be happy to give you some ideas for your special day!

Never release birds close to sunset or after dark. They must have time to fly home before dark so plan your White Dove Release to occur about 1 hour before sunset.

Check Sunset Time for your Release date
