Anting, pecking at their image in a car mirror or a window, preening activities, courtship displays, aggressive displays, hurt-wing displays. You will often be asking yourself, “Why is this bird doing that?” Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has developed many materials to help you learn more about these interesting animals.
