The birds that are considered as the symbol of love, peace and harmony are one of my favorites. That's why whenever people see any couple, they call them love birds, and by birds they mean dove birds. Also in Christianity the dove birds have a kind of Holy importance rendered to them. Being such a cute creature, they can attract so many of humans towards their peaceful and friendly nature. Dove bird is from the pigeon's family and shares so many good qualities with them. Pigeons are also one of the very friendly creatures in this world. Coming back to the doves, these birds can be very easily found in the open agriculture areas.
