In order to attract a female, he leaps into the air as high as possible. Sometimes once very high, sometimes several times in succession. All to find a mate and procreate.
Viewers of BBC Earth could not contain their laughter when they saw pictures about the particular finch in a reserve in Kenya. The bird is like a bouncing up and down to get noticed by the females in the tall green grass.
