Bird Week – Satin Bowerbird   5 comments

For Saturday, I offer up this cheeky little satin bowerbird. Bowerbirds build structures made from sticks and various bits of¬†detritus.¬† These structures are called ‘bowers’ and are built to impress the females, who will check out the bower to see if they’re impressed even before they inspect the male. These birds seem to have a particular eye for anything blue and will pick up trash, berries, and anything else they find that’s blue to embellish their bowers.

I hope you’re having a great weekend!
