During the breeding season, male royal spoonbills perform an intricate courtship display to attract female mates. A notable feature of this display is the male's plumed crest feathers, which are raised and flicked back and forth in a dramatic manner. This display is believed to be a way for males to demonstrate their suitability and attract females with their impressive plumage. Once a pair has formed, the male spoonbill will continue to display to his mate to strengthen their bond throughout the breeding season.
