I love this bird! this animal got so much talent that made feel proud of him.
In nature seems like the males are forced to put all the energy to catch the females, some friend told me they feel in the same way 😉 yes poor of them…
Let’s face if, we are animals and we move in simple directions based on our basic instints.
And my research in psychology brought me to two points to be considered.
1-The female takes the decision as she will get pregnant or look after the eggs and it is a massive risk to do it with the incorrect one, simple.
The fact of trying to find the alpha male is something rational in nature as the goal is to have the best to fail less and put your guns on top of the list.
2-Any animal that requieres more attention until is able to survive is forcing the fact of creating couple, those that after few minutes are ok they have the change to find more females to cope and spread the family.
