My First Female Satin Bowerbird

I turned the corner and walked right into a tree full of Satin Bowerbirds. This one is female. The male was there as well but I'm not certain if the others were the chicks or other females because I didn't get a chance to get a good look and I don't know enough about Bowerbird behaviour to know but I'm guessing they were chicks.

They were unsettled by my presence so I snuck away but would have loved to have stayed and observed them. They breed until January so I have a bit of time.

Stay tuned for my post on the male and his bower. 😀

Stay well.
