I love watching the male birds try to woo the females Valerie. Usually they ignore them and it is so comical I enjoyed your cute haiku. : )

Hi Valerie, a short poem, but absolutely meaningful - the male in the animal and bird kingdoms are always the most beautiful looking! Poetry wishes, Jennifer.

Hilarious to me that we use "strut" so often with males, and yet, the prettiest birds are all males, and they do not even have to strut to get the attention they all need. Lovely.
