Doves are common Birds that can be found throughout New Hyrule. They will often flock together on the ground, fleeing from Link if he gets too close to them. If he uses the Spirit Flute to play the "Song of Birds" when Doves are nearby, they will settle on and around him, staying there until he moves, by which point they will all fly away with the exception of the Dove perched on his hat. This Bird will remain there until Link either rolls, performs a Spin Attack, hits something hard with his Sword, or leaves the area.

- "Link is well known for his green clothing, a look he has sported throughout time. But in Spirit Tracks, he dons a blue uniform with a red cap instead. The cap is decorated with a dove, the symbol of the Royal Engineers. Playing the Song of Birds will call a dove to roost!" — Trophy (Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS)
