Bengal Florican by Dhritiman Mukherjee
During courtship, the male Bengal Florican Houbaropsis bengalensis flaps his wings to rise straight up into the air, making a humming sound and then floats down slowly. This spectacular display might take place five to six times until the female draws close. Once the female approaches, he will hum and display on the ground with an erect and expanded tail.
