Doing the Deed 1.
The Mating Mount:
Once the male has jumped onto the female's back, both facing the same direction, he will need to have enough room to fully flutter his wings to hover in place while holding onto the female's back feathers with his feet and claws, while maneuvering his tail around the side of the female's tail to position his cloaca (vent) underneath to contact with the female's cloaca. There is no external difference between the male and female sex organs. It is basically a sphincter type opening for both defecation and reproduction.
This entire mounting and mating process takes only a few seconds. As the male is maneuvering around and beneath the female's tail, he is flapping his wings vigorously to maintain his position and is nearly falling off of her back at the moment of contact.
