Bird of Paradise.
I would love to experience birds like this up close. One time I had a blue jay eat from my hand, but that’s not common. This year there is a male cat bird that puffs up and struts on the deck. He swings his head from side-to-side while holding a large petal. It’s something else. His mate sits above him and watches.
She’s “connoisseuring” his art and performance–love it!
That’s a new word for me … I’d have to agree 🙂
