Our frontyard Foster holly tree is home to mockingbirds, and our backyard has a very determined bachelor bird who thinks he has found a mate in our mirrored gazing ball.
I have seen documentaries featuring male birds who do very intricate dances to attract the opposite sex, but I have never seen such an elaborate ballet in my own backyard. See for yourself.
And by the way, we have not been able to identify the bird, so please send me a message if you know what type of bird this is. The song he sings sounds like “Ker-fweet”.
