That’s no sculpture that is the nest of a bowerbird. Birds of the family Ptilonorhynchidae are known as bowerbirds. These unique passeriformes can only be found on the islands of New Guinea and Australia. They get their name from the complex bowers which the males construct to attract mates. These unique nests are usually made out of sticks that are formed into a hut like structure complete with walls and roof. Around the birds bower the male will place objects that stand out like leaves, feathers, flowers, berries, insects and shells, they will also use man-made objects like coins, glass and bits of plastic. Al these items are usually placed in a neat and organized pile in front or within the bower . A great amount of time is spent into making these bowers, and all that effort leads up to the mating season where the female bowerbirds come and “rate” the males bowers, when the female arrives the male will perform a courtship display while the female inspects the bower and males performance. The females are fairly picky and will reject several males until they find the right one, once a male is chosen the female will most likely chose the same male the following year.
