FEATHERED FRIENDS

A collection of Australian and New Zealand plumage.

The male Satin Bowerbird builds his bower and decorates it with a collection of flowers and blue trinkets, and spends much of his time perched at his bower making a general raucous in an effort to attract a female. Once he lures one in, this is the elaborate show she enjoys, complete with some beautiful mimicking. At the end, she's chased off down the garden, no longer welcome. She will build a nest, incubate her eggs and raise her chicks without any input from him. He's only interested in one thing!

This particular collection is always under rapid expansion.
