Vocablet of the Day: Display

Peacocks are famous for their brilliant, beautiful feathers — but do you know why those feathers are so important?

Study ‘display‘ now in VocabNetwork’s Beautiful Birds studylist.

If you’ve ever seen a male peacock spread his feathers, you know that it’s quite an impressive arrangement designed to please the eye!

Males compete with their beauty for the attention of the opposite sex. They spread wide and strut around to show off their amazing array of feathers — all to catch the eye of a to-be mate.  The more dull-colored females hold out until they find the male with the most fabulous display.

Hmmm… what other ‘animals’ do we know that try to attract a mate with an elaborate display.  Is it always the male who has the arrangement designed to please the eye?
