The Satin Bowerbird is a glossy blue-black bowerbird with violet eye and semi-covered greenish-yellow bill. This male has created a lovely bower of twigs like an avenue of trees and surrounded it with blue finds like the blue peg in its bill and the occasional blue or yellow flower. He was in a lovely quiet part of Coffs Harbour’s Botanical Gardens and I spied another busy male closer to the entrance but no females as yet seem to be paying any attention. It’s the last month of winter and the weather is warming up and already this week I have spied a number of busy birds collecting twigs for nests.
