CommentI have seen mating pairs on a couple of occasions. I was surprised by the number of 'bouts' in a short period of time. Most birds I have seen mate, the deed is over in a short time and that's that. Initially I thought perhaps there had been no culmination and the act repeated but it just went on and on. The next time I saw another pair the scenario was much the same so I assume this to be the norm. Much of the time it is the females soliciting that is the driver.
