Went out and got my ham Roadster on video, showing off. You'll hear him rattling your computer with his cooing As well as him fanning his tail and "driving" Porsche, even though she's already on eggs Poor guy. He just loves to show off to the ladies (and everyone else!). So if you were wondering what male pigeons look like when they court their hens, here's an example. All puffed up, fanned out, and dancing around in circles. You'll also see Porsche on her nest, telling me she's tough. The wing shaking is just a warning of a full-blown slap attack waiting for me Not sure if you can tell, but she's also puffing up her chest a bit, and fluffing up to look bigger as well. The head bobbing she does when her man comes near, is showing she aknowledges him, and is normally also part of the nest call that includes wing twitching a moaning sound (if you listen closely near 1:10, you can hear another pair making that sound in the background). I'm surprised she didn't grunt anymore than she did (1:56). I'll have to get a video of my hen 626...she'll grunt the entire time you're near her, even if she isn't on the nest! LOL. Then at 1:37, my male dove starts to bow-coo. Only without as much bowing, because they are in a tight space They must not like the other nest choices.
