    I've recently taken in 2 diamond doves. One doesn't make much noise, but the other makes this call ALL THE TIME. And I was wondering if anyone knew what it means or ??? It's kind of like "coo coo coo (pause) coo coo" The first three coos are nicely spaced and the last two are really fast/immediate.

    you either have a male trying to court a female, a male trying to court another male, or a male showing dominance and terrorizing another male. give them a open on side box big enough to fit both spacous in, and some bedding and see if the quiet one lays eggs. course then i have a nutty female that coos and bobbs constantly, but lays egs as well..
