He is courting you. The wing twitching and head down cooing is typical.

Yep, that sounds like the 'courtship thing' my dovey used to do to me when he 'came of age'- he'd inflate his neck sac, bow his head, spread his tail feathers and drive at me...
he would follow me all over the house, and would go crazy if I went out someplace! When I got him a woman(hen) it took him a few days to figure out what she was, he was so imprinted on humans. But now he has several offspring, an outdoor cage and ignores me....aww such is love.....only when I bring in the food bowl.
