Why is it that male pigeons keeps on cooing really loud while snooping on a newly cleaned nest? (just taken out dummy eggs after they're done with sitting for 19 days or so). Are they upset the (old) eggs are gone? But they left the nest already for 2 days! Disappointed

Could be he's ready to set up house again & trying to convince the hen. That's too funny

That would be my guess as well.

Tech...I do agree with Robin and Cindy, he is calling his beloved back to the nest to make some more eggs.

Tech..........My Snowflake does the exact same thing after I remove the dummy eggs. He lays in the nest for hours cooing trying get Jackie back in the nest. Two or three days later I will see them mating again and within the next week there will be more eggs and everything is back to normal.

I have a couple of males that get very upset when I clean out the box. One in particular, Kane. I have to remove Kane and April from the loft so that they don't see me taking out the contents or the eggs, clean it. add a bit of straw and try to make a little nest, and then make sure that I put April back in the nest, before returning him. Otherwise, he goes ballistic. He will fly in and out of the nest, all the time cooing loudly in that low coo that means he is very unhappy. Sometimes, I think he blames April for my destroying the nest, and he will attack her and keep throwing her out of the box. It's terrible.

And when I clean Aries box and take out all the nesting materials and the old eggs, He drags poor Rags all over the loft for days, looking for another, (probably more secure) nesting sight. These two both happen to be ferals, and I wonder if that makes a difference. Some sort of built in thing about having to have a secure nest that no one messes with, or can find. I know it sounds weird, but this is what happens with these two when their nest has been tampered with. Most of my birds are fine about it. I know, I have crazy birds! nutter

Tech, did he SEE you clean out the nest? And is he flying in and out, but not in the same way as he does when trying to call her to him?

Niteowl: I make sure they don't see me when I clean the nest. But sometimes I cannot avoid Bank seeing me because he is the nosy one. He just flies fast to me whenever they're out of cage. Bank is very sociable, he likes to be around me. Anyways, in addition to the cooing and ohhrring sound when he's on the newly cleaned nest, I tell you he sounded like he's mad murmuring:

"Where ohrr the erggs? Where ohrr the erggs? Where orr the erggs"...and I always answer him: "I dorn't knowrh, I dorn't knowrh"!! I have NO idea I have NO idea I have NO idea

Kane is just too much. I remember one time he just wouldn't give up on the old (wooden) eggs. He just kept sitting on them, and april, his mate was on the new nest they had made on her new eggs. There they sat, day after day, both in the same box but on different nests. but he was so determined to hatch them. Kind of sad really. I usually leave the eggs alone with those two til after they have another set of eggs. He gets too upset when he comes back to the box and finds that they are gone.

Pigeons are so similar to us humans...each one reacts to the same situation in a different way. Just think...some humans have the audacity to call birds dumb...complicated but never dumb.
