While admiring his work, a male spotted bowerbird lurks around his bower as he awaits a female visitor. Anxiously, he double-checks his decorations and ponders how to accentuate features to make them even more attractive. Spotting minor imperfections, he then moves forward to relocate them into a better spot.
Spotted bowerbirds are one of nature’s most prominent artefact collectors. They will collect anything of interest or white coloured to adorn their bowers. Collecting tin foils, paper wrappers, matte glass shards, and bottle caps. The idea is that females will tend to select males with more beautiful bowers over duller ones and hopefully breed with those.[the_ad id="61677"]
