"How Not to Pursue Your Gal"
These two curlews at Bear River MBR were quite a ways off but I
couldn't resist photographing their antics. The male was trying to
the female. I could almost hear him saying "Look at my
wings! They're large and fluffy and can fly long distances.
I'm tall and muscular!
What's not to like?" She was having none of it. © Carol
He was beginning to be a little too pushy for her so she tried to walk
the other way. He wouldn't give up: "I bathe every day and
look at other chicks. You're my one and only!" © Carol
By this time, she had lost her patience with him and sent him
scrambling. He didn't go far enough so she chased him away
her kind of "Curlew Guy", obviously. ©
