The Cowbird Dance
Spring is in the air and this young man's fancy has turned to thoughts of love! :) I was entertained watching this pair of courting cowbirds as the male did a dance of feather puffing, wing spreading, bowing and wiping his beak on the tree branch. The female would also wipe her beak on the branch. The eggs that will result from their union will be laid in another bird's nest, this couple will never see their offspring!
