Wedding Doves of Central Florida
Some Brief Background Notes on Wedding Doves of Central Florida When you decide to hire Wedding Doves of Central Florida, you are employing the services of a pioneer in the Wedding Dove Business. I founded Homewood Loft Wedding Doves in 1987, naming the fledgling business after a farm in Redding, Connecticut that has been owned by five generations of my family for over a hundred years.
I've been a dove, or pigeon fancier since 1960. As a child I used to watch my father's flock of racing pigeons cut through the sky, wheeling above the acres of corn like children playing crack-the-whip. Have you heard the whistling of the wings? I've heard it said that racing pigeons is the poor man's horse racing, but when I would lay in the grass or on the barn roof to watch my dad's birds circle the farm I was a Prince of Poverty Hollow!
Dad, who raced pigeons long before I did,muted to Manhattan for 45 years to sell ad space in Harper, The Atlantic. Scientific American and Smithsonian magazines. He taught me my first steps in handling pigeons, but it was December of 1979 on Waikiki Beach, Oahu that I first observed White Rock Doves fluttering from the tops of the palms down to the beach. That stunning vision hooked me forever!
Like my dad, I raced pigeons with the DBF (Danbury Bethel Flyers). I was blessed there to be in thepany and tutilage of pigeon racing greats, Duke Mucharino, Mickie Smeriglio, Bob Bergman, Pete Pertinio, Ernie Rilling, Joey Rodriguez and Nick the Greek, to name a few. The DBF gents taught me and shared some wonderful birds with me. I partnered with a ringer from Minnesota named John Charpentier. We flew Peppermins, Dordins, Jansens and Black Eagle crosses courtesy of our wise elders. And we won money with a Morvedt White. Other strains of White Racing Pigeons Include White Scions, White jansens, White Grueters, Stickelbauts, White Dordins, White Trentons and Pletnix. Of all the white homers I ever trained and flew I never saw a bird topare with the Mortvedt Whites I purchased from Bill Mohr of Wisconsin back in '89 or '90. My Mortvedts were a smaller and faster bird, unbelievable in your hands and interested in almost nothing but flying. My Pletnix would fight for position at the feeder, but the Mortvedt Whites had their eyes on the sky!
Roger Mortvedt of Torrance, California founded a club called The White Racing Pigeon Club of America to provide a network intended to elevate the intelligence, speed and endurance of white pigeons through selection, exchange andpetition. Roger ran a prestigious One Loft Race attracting breeders throughout the U.S. and abroad which raised the awareness and desirability of the Mortvedt White. His simple goal was to breed the best of the best.
