But this is no bible tale.
This is a wee blue budgie, Samson, who has taken a shine to a wood pigeon who is more than twice his size. All of this is taking place at the DWARF animal sanctuary in Southend, Essex under the amused eye of Iain Newby.
"Some blokes like big birds. He is so loved up. He chases other birds that come close, as if he'’s saying, "That's my lady."
Samson is quite protective of Delilah, feeding, preening and trying to mate her, even jumps on her back for walks around . Because that's when you do when you're in love.
