Migrating Doves


When doves migrate through an area, the same dove species that is resident to that area intermingle with each other and mate. When the migrating dove move on they will lay they eggs that were fertilized by the resident dove with them to later be hatched where they are migrating to. The resident dove then lay their eggs and both populations grow over time.


When Animals migrate to another area the predators population grows, because of the huge grow in prey due to global warming.
