It seems early, but on one of our rare sunny days, I heard a chickadee sing his two-note mating call.
The courtship season for birds will soon be here.
Because Valentines’ Day coming soon, I would point out that bird courtship is an artistic endeavor.
To attract a mate, a male bird must sing, dance, behave dramatically or create a visual presentation.
In the dance department, some species dance, and others perform acrobatic courtship flights.
Ritual dancing is, for many birds, a critical part of pair bonding.
