Another Satin Bowerbird (in privet).

Here are six (cropped) photos of a Satin Bowerbird consuming privet fruit (& responsible for spreading the weed) this afternoon.

What a great looking bird Ross. Lovely shots in a great setting. I like the way its eyes match the privet berries.

Thank you Mark. Can't say I'm a fan of Old Blue Eyes, but Terence Hill comes to mind though in "My Name is Nobody" movie. He had piercing blue eyes.

Thanks Ron. Great setting visually, but to us (particularly in native bush areas) privet is a invasive weed though (& a little tough to pull up). However, these birds (the males) do collect blue items for their bower such as blue pegs etc,. so they might be attracted to blue fruit too. The above bird looks like a female, but could also be a juvenile male with the following being a mature male of the species.
