Fantastic party outfit!

Fantastic party outfit!

Birds like no other kind of creatures know how to be festive. A Wading bird called ruff (a piper) lives in Northern Eurasia. It has a very elaborate collar, which is individual to each bird. Birds use it to attract females. The name “ruff”  has direct connotation to flamboyant large collar, which was fashionable in Europe in the Middle Ages. Fantastic party outfit! Shame it can’t be changed as they are born with it but it is what it is. If a female bird doesn’t like it: that’s it. No second set of collars and no second chance. And what if THAT kind of collar goes out of fashion? Tough luck! Lets hope those females love the variety and aren’t too picky!
Impress your partner with unique outfit celebrating Valentine’s Day!
