If it's a rooster, why do they call it crowing?


This rooster didn't care that it was the middle of the day, he was determined to show off his vocal skills anyway.

A young rooster crows more often than an old one. He is young, as you can tell, from his small spurs. An old rooster has spurs several inches long and most curl up. But then he is beautiful and is crowing to attract either a prize hen or two or to challenge any other roosters out there. What a nice photograph this is.

If I don't get back to see you again before the weekend, I will wish you a "Happy Decoration Day" weekend. Alas, now called 'Memorial Day' weekend here in the states; and, better known for the Indianapolis 500 race than for decorating the graves of the dead.

What a beautiful bird. And you caught him with his beak wide open!
In Jerusalem we have St. Peter's in Gallicantu (meaning cock-crow in Latin) and a gold rooster sits on a cross on the roof of the church. The silent variety. :)

Nice picture. Birds make good subjects. - I am jealous of your pictures of summer. It's approaching winter here in New Zealand. - Dave

Lovely photo and good question. Do you think the crows mind?

I am born in the year of a rooster. I am told that we are flamboyant and a show-off. Guess this young rooster (as Abe said) must be trying to show-off! Its feather is so shining and vibrant looking ~ he has all the right to be arrogant about his look!!!
