females aren't fickle; they just change their mind (It's-from-the-CBC-so-it-must-be-true...)

Interesting article this evening. Looking at the how the mating preferences of bower birds change as the females age. Apparently flashy displays are more likely to impress the younger females, while older females are looking for energy and skill in a mating dance. Weirder yet, the young females are said to be afraid of the more skillful dance the older gals love. So, all you cats and canaries; if you want to catch a young'un, buy a sports car, if you want an elegant and mature lady of the world, brush up on your witty reparté.
