Video of the Australian Great Bower Bird working on its Bower nest to impress females. He uses sticks to build the Bower and rocks, shells, glass, metals, and plastic bits to pave the walkway around it. The sole purpose of the Bower is to attract a female, have a one night stand, and then leave her alone to raise the chicks while he looks for other mates.

Read More: http://www.GistOnThis.com The concept of bachelor pads isn't unique to humans. Male bowerbirds are amazing architects, but they reserve theirs skills for just one purpose -- finding a mate. They construct such elaborate and dazzling nests to impress females, perhaps they could teach our men a thing or two about home décor. Male bowerbirds use embellishments such as coins, nails, leaves, shells, seeds, flowers and live insects to weave their nests, called bowers. Bowers are U-shaped nests built with twigs and grass, and carpeted with moss. Each bower is an architectural marvel that stretches out 5 or 6 yards across, complete with a thatched roof and supporting pillars. Blue is a very important color in the construction process. Male bowerbirds use several blue objects -- berrie...

Male Satin Bowerbirds attract mates by building a bower, a structure made of twigs and decorated with objects from around the forest. The bower is not a nest; its sole purpose is to allow a male to show off his building skills. A well constructed bower is so crucial to gaining mates that male bowerbirds sometimes resort to stealing building materials from neighboring males. Here, a female Satin Bowerbird stands in the center of the bower and watches a male displaying.

Witness an unassuming male deliver fresh flowers to his deep forest architectural wonder. More at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's All About Fancy Males interactive feature: http://biology.allaboutbirds.org/all-about-fancy-males/ What’s happening: Why is this Vogelkop Bowerbird (Amblyornis inornata) delivering flowers? Rather than being showy himself, he’s decorating the twig hut he’s built with carefully chosen lawn ornaments. This impressive structure is not a nest. It’s a bower—constructed and maintained for the sole purpose of impressing females. Local females regularly visit neighborhood bowers to compare design choices, then base their mating decisions on which displays make the best overall impression. For bowerbird males then, it’s the architectural skills that count. Videograph...
UPDATE: NOV 2015. This bower was destroyed in a storm and remained flatten etc. However the bower birds have set up a new bower elsewhere in my backyard garden . I now have filmed their mating ritual in High Definition and it is now up on my Youtube Channel. Meanwhile in this film...... Here is this beautiful Australian native male bird, building it's nest to attract the female of the species, (sorta like us humans). This bird was filmed in the 7d Hacking River Protected Environment Zone near Helensburgh/Otford in New South Wales. It is extremely rare to film the male satin bower bird building the nest. The area it is located in is in danger of being changed to allow development, industrial, residential, commercial, so this film may be the only time the world has a decent record of it's ...
A day in the life of a hard working male Satin Bowerbird. Twelves hours of work from 5.00am to 5.00pm.. At about 1.00 minute an intruder comes and pinches some of his trinkets ,and does a bit of vandalism on the bower, then comes back for more of his stuff. The owner comes back and repairs it. He keeps busy all day and around 2.52 he starts dancing, presumably for a female who's out of shot. To no avail, she doesn't come down to the bower. He keeps working until the day fades.. I sped things up in places to keep it moving.
It is often said that a beautiful garden possesses another-worldly quality. That is certainly true for this particular garden in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. My job here was essentially to ventilate the garden and provide some order to the owner's wonderfully eclectic collection of plants and treasures. Such a collection deserves a beautiful arrangement - it was our task to define and carve out distinct spaces.
