Hectic 2
Or maybe "Nag nag nag! I told you I have a headache." I'm not sure I was reading this behavior correctly, but as I saw it, a male was getting impatient with a female who wasn't (yet?) interested. He was calling, bowing, getting in her face, even stamping his feet with impatience. She wasn't having it. Yet. A few days later I saw a pair doing mutual bows and sharing food.

Work of art,Doc,great behaviour and quite funny with the third bird who couldn't care less and kept on preening. Like it lots.

Splendid shot!
