Seems @-- backwards to me, but this is what is going on in the backyard.
Two female flickers dancing, preening, dueling beaks, flashing spread tail
feathers in apparent attempts to attract attention of a single male (who
seems to show no interest whatsoever). What-the-heck is this all about?
Black moustache makes it easy to tell who is chasing whom. Quite the show.
