More on Bower Birds

I was overwhelmed by the number of people who were interested in the post on bower birds, so I have decided to extend it with a couple of recent photos of our bower bird. The bower (the construction in the centre of both photos) is built from small sticks and pine needles and is surprisingly sturdy. The bower bird's collection of blue objects can be seen in the background.

  1. How wonderful to have such an interesting bird in your garden. We enjoy watching our blackbirds and robins, etc., but they can't compete with this.

    1. With all his very special antics and characteristics, he has made himself an important part of the family. I do feel, however, that most birds have distinct personalities, especially those who continually share the same living space as we do. Thank you so much for dropping by, Keith.

    1. Thank you, Annette. At the moment, he is in the process of moving to another part of the garden. I think he is a bit like me - he thrives on constant change...
