Can the weather affect the release?

The birds cannot be released less than one hour before sunset, in high winds, rain, or if a thunderstorm is forecast.


What happens to the White Doves after they are released?

The birds will soar up into the sky, usually circling a few times to get their bearings, then head for home.


Do all doves know how to find their way home?

The birds have spent months in training and have an amazing ability to find their way home. They just love to fly…


Do the birds make a mess?

No, the birds don’t make a mess. They never mess while they are in flight.


What happens if a bird goes astray or gets lost?

All Sky High Doves are C P F A banded with an identification number which is registered with The Canadian Pigeon Fanciers Association. In the unlikely event a bird goes astray, it can easily be identified and returned home.

Sky High Doves will only release healthy well trained Pure White Homing Pigeons which are CPFA banded.

We will attend your event dressed in appropriate attire.

We will be on time, and act professional at all times.

We shall give photographers and videographers prior notice of the release, so they are able to capture the special moment.

We will never release the birds indoors, near electrical wires, at night, or in inclement weather.

We do not allow birds to be picked up for ‘’Self Release’’

We reserve the right to cancel a release if we feel that the bird’s safety and/or health is at risk.

We will return all deposits for Acts of God, etc.

Booking and Payment

A 25% deposit is required at the time of booking, with the balance due on the release day, prior to the White Dove Release. Should the release have to be cancelled due to weather conditions, a full refund will be given, including the deposit.

The Release

We cannot guarantee exactly what the doves will do after they are released. The birds will always fly up into the air after their release, but they may disappear quite quickly, or they may circle around many times before heading for home.
