Why does the bleeding heart pigeon have that red marking?

I went to the local wildlife sanctuary recently and I saw the bleeding heart pigeon. It's really pretty but I want to know how or why nature gave it that kind of marking. If anyone has a good opinion on this, I'd like to hear about it.

It is for males to attract mates. They display their red chests prominently during mating season.
