Lovie Dovie

 Came upon this fenced in flock of pigeons while out and about.
 
This pair were getting a little 'lovie dovie'.

The RG surmised they were practicing for an upcoming wedding.
 
 
"The White Pigeon is often known as the release dove for events such as weddings or sporting events. While it looks very much like a dove, the White Pigeon is a specialty breed of homing pigeon. Whereas releasing a large number of doves into the air during events is likely to strand hundreds of doves in the wild unable to care for themselves, White Pigeons can be released and are likely to find their way home."
