Interesting Behavior

2872-copy1.jpgI’ve observed some interesting behavior with this bird and a female.  I think they are a breeding pair.  He brings her something to eat and shares it with her when they first land on the feeder.  He may do it several times during the time they are on the feeder.  I’ve yet to be able to get the camera in place in time to film or photograph the interaction, but I’ll continue to try and catch it.  I love to see this kind of behavior that I’ve never noticed before

    It’s called “taking your girlfriend out to dinner.”

    Seriously, that is interesting behavior. I wonder if it’s to show that he’s willing and able to feed the babies when they hatch.
