This male Satin Bowerbird (in our front garden) continually tries to woo the females daily.

I'm afraid the world of birds (& other animals) could be considered 'sexist', but ........ I'm not saying anymore in case I get into trouble.
I think it could have been a leaf or a piece of plastic he had for her.

Thanks, but it's a case of being in the right place at the right time with the right camera gear & I was this time.
