There was romance in the air this morning.

Throughout the past couple weeks, we’ve had a couple of hen pheasants that have been consistently feeding in the field behind our house. This morning a rooster joined them.

Feeding, however, was not what was on his mind.

This isn’t the best angle to see him in his full strut, but it’s a great angle to show how he’s attempting to make himself look bigger to the hen. He has flattened himself out, spread out his tail feathers, and moved in close to her.

She, on the other hand, seemed more annoyed than anything. She kept trying to feed, and he kept invading her space.

Maybe next time, bud!
