A handsome Ruddy Duck put on a unique courtship display by beating his bill against his chest feathers rapidly, creating bubbles in the water. He punctuated the end of the display with a belching noise!
A female Ruddy was nearby and appeared to be watching the action out of the corner of her eye! :0)
The handsome Common Grackle had love on his mind as he swaggered back and forth while puffing up his feathers and uttering a series of guttural sexy squeaks.
His all-inclusive courtship display had sure attracted the attention of a few lady Grackles nearby.
