While Dove is the term we use symbolically, our flock is actually pure white homing pigeons. What's the difference between pigeons and doves? None, pigeons are doves, doves are pigeons.

The white homing pigeons we see used in dove releases today are descended from the rock dove. These beautiful athletes of the sky have come about through mans intervention using selective breeding over many years. It's important to realize that while doves and pigeons are part of the same family, reputable dove release professionals use white homing pigeons (rock doves) that can safely return home over hundreds of miles.
Maryland's Wings of Love Doves are strong intelligent fliers and our releases normally take place within a 50 mile radius of the birds home.
Our birds are sparkling clean and enjoy bath time just about as much as they enjoy feed time. A lot of time is spent maintaining their health and appearance: clean lofts are a must, and the birds are kept on a strict maintenance program to ensure their perfect health.
Maryland's Wings of Love Doves pose no threat to humans or animals.
