Birds Mating
Birds pair up.  Males display unique colors or behavior during courting to attract the desired female.  They may posture, puff up, spread and flap wings, bow and stretch, preen one another, and even do loop-the-loop in midair in courting.  Males will fight other males away. As they come together to copulate, there will be moments of excitement as well as moments of tenderness.
