So, the ruff (Philomachus pugnax) males have developed three different mating strategies based on their genetic differences. First, there are the territorial males, each of which aggressively defends an arena of ~1 m? against other territorial males. Then there are the satellite males. They follow one of the territorial males and hope to get some chance on the females, which the territorial attracts. The more satellites are following a single territorial male, the more attractive the territorial is to the females. Finally, there are the faeder, which are disguised as females and sneak their way in to get a chance to mate. Faeder (female mimic) Sorry for the long post. Here is a birdtato.
