You describe behavior just like I described the other day. It did look amorous to me!

> Over the past several 4-5 days, we?ve had two flickers in our yard who spent hours close together doing what I call ?beak dancing?, head bobbing, ?statue game? behavior of sudden freezing of movement in whatever position they were in at the moment (all of this pretty much in unison) before resuming ?beak dancing?, wing fluttering and tail flashing, short hop-flights off the ground/fence/utility pole fluttering at and around each other, etc. I pointed them out to my husband since we had watched this behavior in past years, and he also asked ?isn?t this the wrong time of year for that??
