    So I took a lot of pea pictures today and here are some of my favorite ones I took today...There was a lot of displaying done today mainly by Alto (the younger male), but Dragon (the older male) didn't do much. He was mainly busy eating and the peahens preened a lot up on the perches.

    Here is Alto next to Damsel:

    When Alto displays, he often likes to pick up a stick, scratch at the ground or scratch up plants or peck them, ect. Today he was pecking the blue coffee can that I keep sunflower seeds in to throw out to them. The can was upright but he pecked at it and kicked it so he flipped it upside down like it is in the picture.

    This is Dragon:

    In this picture Dragon is displaying to Ice, and I am behind him messing with his feathers.

    Alto is displaying to Pip, his short little lowest ranking peahen girlfriend who is streaching her wings, then Dragon is just displaying for anyone really.
