It’s only the second of twelve days of dumb gifts and I’m confused. I have searched various internet resources. Some tell me the “turtle” in turtledoves comes for their cooing noise. Others explain the Latin word for dumb bird, turtur, transformed into turtledove. I’m going with the coo because coo is a word that should get more use.
Two turtledoves are more graceful than a pigeon waiting for food on my deck.
Their lifetime affectionate mating habits explain their love bird references. Ok that makes sense but if so, then their cousins, city pigeons are the street walking hookers of the family. There have been mornings where my coffee time was interrupted by cooing solicitations right there on my own back deck. No concern shown for the neighbors as they flashed their big breasts. At least the red breasted robins keep a respectable distance away.
