yeah, it's fine when we are talking about birds. But then I realized, that this bird-mouth kanji is used for all kinds of animal sounds. Then it becomes kinda counter-intuitive to translate "dog bark" as 「bird-mouth」kanji.

No, it's archaic and is rarely used in daily text.

This lesson is a prime example of why there should be more kanji used on duo, since it's got both 泣くand 鳴く.
