Hello Falk,

I've searched the literature including HANZAB and Harry Frith's Pigeon book and 
when calls are discussed it is always the "adult" that is referred to which in 
context always seems to be the male - no mention of females calling at all.

I can understand the territorial calls only being given by males - in many 
birds this is not unusual, but I would expect that the soft contact calls to be 
given by both sexes, but again, no information.
