RGV Birds of Paradise.
Yesterday, I saw a male Yellow-crowned Night-heron displaying before a seemingly interested female friend at Frontera. Well, I guess it was a female. I mean it's none of my business. Anyway his wing, crown and tail coverts display reminded me of the showy prenuptial antics of New Guinea's birds of paradise.
This guy was showing off too. Lucky for him I backed down.
