The Andean Cock-Of-The-Rock

The male Cock-of-the Rock

Is a bird whose looks and behaviors will knock off your socks

With its scarlet elongated head topped off by a crest bigger than its chest,

This national bird of Peru

With wooing a’brewing

In its mating lek competitively hopping and bopping, bopping and hopping

Trying to attract a female whose interested in more than just male forest window shopping,

This cotinga is one heck of a singer

Trying his best to get a mate to produce some eggs to put in their nest.
