Courtship begins with a noisy flight by the male, followed by a graceful, circular glide with outstretched wings and head down. After landing, the male will approach the female with a puffed-out breast, bobbing head, and loud calls. Mated pairs will often preen each other’s feathers.
Lovely series, HJ! I’ve seen the male courtship, he does strut his stuff! 🙂
Thank you, Donna. 😳
