Rivalry

Published by at 6:00 am under Beyond Bounds,Bird Behavior

The lady peahen in this video looks brown and boring but her presence prompts two peacocks to fan their tails.

The adult male struts and quivers his beautiful upper tail coverts.

The young male raises his pathetically small feathers and tries to do the same.

Can he win?  Watch and see.
