Pied Shags, looking for love

While birding in the USA, I have been able to watch quite a few different birds got thru their sometimes elaborate mating routines. Yesterday, I got to watch the Pied Shags, work their way thru a very similar little game that is quite similar to our Great Blue Herons. I call it “The Stick Game”. In this game, the birds play a bird of keep away, with a twig or stick, and then sooner or later the game switches to a game of tug! In the shots below, you can see this adoring young couple with their stick…
