Turtle, Turtle-dove: Its peculiar peaceful and gentle habit its often referred to in
Scripture. A pair was offered in sacrifice by Mary at her purification
(Luke 2:24) The pigeon and the turtle-dove were the only birds
permitted to be offered in sacrifice
(Leviticus 1:14; 5:7; 14:22; 15:14,29)
etc. The Latin name of this bird, turtur, is derived from its note,
and is a repetition of the Hebrew name tor. Three species are found
1. the turtle-dove (Turtur auritus),
2. the collared turtle (T. risorius), and
3. the palm turtle (T. Senegalensis).
But it is to the first of these species which the various passages of
Scripture refer. It is a migratory bird
(Jeremiah 8:7; The Song of Solomon 2:11,12) "Search
the glades and valleys, even by sultry Jordan, at the end of March, and
not a turtle-dove is to be seen. Return in the second week of April,
and clouds of doves are feeding on the clovers of the plain. They
overspread the whole face of the land." "Immediately on its arrival it
pours forth from every garden, grove, and wooded hill its melancholy
yet soothing ditty unceasingly from early dawn till sunset. It is from
its plaintive and continuous note, doubtless, that David, pouring forth
his heart's sorrow to God, compares himself to a turtle-dove"
