Nature Walk: Spring Courtship

Pheasant Courtship

“Spring courtship displays in the avian family are as many and varied as there are species of birds. Tom turkeys strut, cranes dance and pheasants put on a sidestepping show to display their best colors. Early in the season, hen pheasants often try to ignore the whole business by turning around or looking for food. It is all part of the mating game, and can go on for several weeks. It helps the birds chose the best partner and eventually form a pair bond.” – Carl Kurtz
