So my rescued feral ...escaped pet ...aw, who knows?
My rescued pigeon Walter is super duper quiet. The only sounds i've heard him make in the past weeks are growling when he's about to be handled or when a new person gets too close, and his coo-crowing in the mornings that started this past week.

Every morning, somewhere around 4-5am, he will coo loudly in a cadence that resembles a rooster's crow.

Is this normal? He took a pretty hard blow to the noggin and was a little sun-baked before he was rescued. Maybe he knocked his little bird brain hard enough that he thinks he's a chicken now.

Addition: I was singing a Weezer song (Perfect Situation) and Walter started singing along in the same key. A sort of "wwwrrrrrmm-wwwoeeee! wwwrrrrrmm-wwwoeeeeee!"

He got upset when i sang earlier today but now he seems pretty pleased with himself.

That means he's in the mood for luuuuuuuuurve... Walter's dawn chorus 983488 And it's the final confirmation that he's recovering very fast!
Chickens don't have the monopoly of dawn chorus -- pigeons do it too, as in the wild they start their morning activity at dawn. However, if that stops you from sleeping, you can fool him into thinking it's earlier by making his surroundings darker (with a curtain or some sort of cover, for example).

They can also burst into song when they hear a tune that they like. My daughter often got exhasperated when Hercules 'sang' along with the theme song of her favourite series and wouldn't let her hear the TV! That's too funny

Rabbit - you would be clearly astonished about the variations between cacophony and perfect operetta songs you could hear each morning on my balcony - especially our Charly "sings" in a voice that clearly proves that he has smoked too many cigars and drinks too much wisky each night. He rather sounds like an angry crow than a pigeon!!!! Oh no Oh no Oh no

Hi, Rabbit!
