One of my favorite parts of spring and early summer is watching all of the wild birds trying to "wow" their mate. A good share of them do this on our deck rail, so we always get a kick out of all of their fancy moves. I finally caught a little footage of a male purple finch doing his dance today, so I thought I'd share.
What do you think the little lady is thinking? Total boredom, hmm he looks interesting, WOW!, etc.?



I took this through a window, so it's not the greatest quality, but you can still get the better part of it. :)

LOL! Yes, I get the biggest kick out of all of their different displays.

I need to get the HD version of Planet Earth one of these days too, so I can see it in it's full spectrum.

nailalc, aren't the Orioles cool? We have them come through every year, and this year a female almost emptied our Hummingbird feeder, but about the time I get an actual Oriole feeder out, they are gone again. I do put orange halves out for them and they like it, plus a bunch of other birds also indulge, so it's worth it.
We also try to put jam or jelly out for the Robins since it always has to snow quite a bit after they get here and I worry about them.

Right now we have a bird out there that is perfectly emulating a cell phone ringing, right down to the timing between rings. The first day I heard it I had to look all over thinking someone left a phone out there somewhere, but it's coming out of a tree, so I can only assume it's a starling since they are such good mimics.... LOL!
