That Face he does

I have for almost half a month now, a pigeon who have had been injured a long time ago and that I found in a parc unable to fly (probably hit by a bicycle unable to take off on time) , so heís basically wild but used to humans- he doesnít want me to touch him but eats and drink in front of me and coos when I try to sleep.
Thereís that face he does a lot- Iím used to have cats so I interpreted it as "Iím happy and ready to sleep", eyes half closed and a bit fluffed, if I donít move he even starts to sleep.

What is that face and does that mean he starts to trust me?

I asked someone who has a pigeon and she said that he would t close his eyes in my presence if he was scared of me because in the wild closed eyes= being eaten by a predator.

Also sometimes when I stop looking when he does that he coos a bit, very soft and cute coo, literally "coo"

Thanks in advance for helping!

He could be getting more used to your presence, or may be sick or hurt.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass........It's about learning to dance in the rain.
