Stevie Nicks made the idea of a white-winged dove singing famous with a lyric from her 1982 hit song "Edge of Seventeen". This week, though, Stevie admitted she had never actually heard a dove sing - until now.

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Who who who
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Oh baby oh said oh

Stevie took to twitter this week to tell the story behind writing the song years ago, and then having the experience of actually hearing a dove, in a tree outside her Arizona home.

Stevie tweeted about how moved she was by the sound of the dove and how, in a turbulent time, she is taking the bird's appearance as a sign.

If you are a Stevie Nicks fan, this is great stuff!
