@Greyhawk you go ahead as you got the empid part first!

Thank you. Next:

During courtship, the black male of this species performs a song while circling a female, and when the song is finished they bow to their prospective mate. This bow is a display used in both mating rituals and as a show of aggression toward other males. It consists of the male ruffling his feathers while arching his wings and lowering his tail. The display is performed either on the ground, in a tree, or while flying. Following a successful mating display, the pair will copulate once.

This is a South American species that has been expanding northward, and is now breeding in Florida.
