The Andean Cock-of-the-rock is Peru's national bird. Every morning the males put on a display in hopes of attracting a female. They perform elaborate dances, bobbing and hopping up and down on branches, making a variety of strange sounds. It is quite entertaining to watch.
Location: Cock of the Rock Lodge, Peru
