Hi we weirdly now have a white dove for the past two nights roosting on our porch roof, yesterday flew into our door scrambled on the roof, slept, disappeared then cdm back tonight. Is she/he ok??


  • Pigeons or feral doves often do roost on houses at night, so no reason to be concerned just because of that behaviour. It's often young ones that make a fuss about it, like yours has done (and they breed all year round), but it's generally just lack of inexperience. I have a colony on my roof and window ledges and the youngsters occasionally crash noisily into windows and things but rarely come to harm.
