Wilson's Bird-of-Paradise


It was so interesting to see how hard the male worked to attract a female. He would clean up his mating area making sure it was suitable for a lady. He would dance around his pole. He let out the loudest of calls. And when the female showed up he eventually got 'down on his knees' in admiration of her presence while 'begging' for her approval!
