great bower display …

Bower birds are well known for building immaculate display bowers to attract the opposite sect. This male bower bird in Broome has built 2 bowers right next to each other, and collected shells, stones and building screws to show females his worth. I have seen seeds, cutlery, broken coloured glass, usually blue or green, ,and coins in displays around the Kimberley.

eThe Great Bower Bird, caught here below in mid-hop, is situated right next to a car park in town. The bower is very carefully made with thin twigs and woven into a display.f
