Small Pratincole Displaying - Another Dodgy Video!

I shot this Sunday while at the local reservoir. This bird is putting on some sort of display.....a fascinating spectacle. I am sorry about post-production. This is not my strong suit but I am learning. Anyone able to recommend some editing software for Mac? This is edited using iMovie.


  1. Hi Gerry,

    Interesting behaviour! I suspect it might be some kind of distraction display (?) Pretending to be injured to draw a predator away from it's nest/chicks...

    I haven't read anything about Praticoles doing this, but it seems like a possible explanation.



  2. Thanks Dave I think you are correct and I must be careful about not encroaching too far.
