Tricky Love Birds!

Whenever you think of birds, you get a mental picture of colorful parrots, graceful dancing peacocks, intimate love birds, fluttering pigeons, stately flamingos, polite pelicans and spotless white ducks.

Do you know the other side life of birds? Divorce is common in love birds! Yes, most of the qualities termed as selfishness in the dictionary of mankind, do exist in birds also.

Canadian researchers have done in depth study on the behavioral pattern of birds and their findings are amazing and difficult to digest too.

Male Acadian flycatchers fertilize other female birds far away from their home nests.

Female blue headed vireos contemplate on divorce by checking out new partners before abandoning the existing partner and the young ones.

Often female birds get attracted to more beautiful, colorful and active males than their present partners.

Better singers are most sought after by love seekers!

Some times, new partners are preferred for improved life style, better food and better safety considerations.

Male birds demonstrate their virility by mating neighboring females.

Divorce is very common amongst birds and many birds change partners within a few months. Divorce among the stately flamingos is 99% while it is almost zero percent in case of wandering albatross.

Do you agree that birds seem to know more about partners than humans do!

  1. I didn't know this. I'm guessing that birds are far more intelligent where love is concerned.

    Have a terrific day. :)
