Spotted Dove courtship / mating rituals Part 1

Spotted Dove – (Streptopelia chinensis) – Tekukur on a coconut tree

both look at a different way, than the male slowly  inch closer to the female

went closer and stop to see the female reaction

slowly walk toward the female

Wow!, she flew off

and away


the female landed at the lower leaf stalk

the couple later flew to the ground and feed together
