Can anyone tell me whether black-faced monarchs males have any particular
display to their females? Today I saw an immature male perched on a branch
and several times he spread his wings and tail and ducked  his head from
side to side sort of like he was fixing the  feathers on the undersides of
his wings . Each time he did this, it was followed by a loud burst of song
then he'd hop to another branch and do it again. I don't know much about
monarchs and this sort of behaviour isn't mentioned in any of my books.
