The hidden world of a Satin Bowerbird (male).

This male Bowerbird has conveniently built his bower in our front garden but inconveniently somewhat obscured from view. This is the only type of view I get without scaring the bird off.

Another view of the Bowerbird during his performance routine. Note the 'wide eye' look. The next frame is a crop of this photo to show the bird's face clearer.

I took some video, but this male seemed to stop while listening to another (maybe a rival male). Also a Wattlebird can be heard too.
Click on the image to watch the video in Flickr.

I took this photo of the bower a little later than the previous video & photos were taken to show the actual bower construction this bird has built in our front garden. The inside 'U' shape is about 4-5 inches across.

Re: The hidden world of a Satin Bowerbird (male).

Thanks for the likes. I noticed the male had enticed a female into his bower as she was standing in the middle of it, but unfortunately it wasn’t possible to get a photo of her there though. I’ll keep trying if it happens again, so now he’s got lucky once we’ll see if he does again.
