Introducing Mr Satin bowerbird outside his Blue Mountains  home. His address is No. 1 Memorial Park. Blackheath 2785.

The proud home owner.

This is a very well located, private property only a two minute walk to the village (twenty seconds in full flight).

Swimming pool complex nearby and someone to cut the grass.  Oh, and a pond as well.

Decent neighbours, the wood duck family.

Such an idyllic duck pond nearby.

Yes, he has those sought after water glimpses from his front door..

Well, that’s definitely a water view!

The interior of the home is simply a masterpiece.  Modern materials have been employed almost exclusively; that is….. PLASTIC!  Just a few  old-fashioned, organic touches with feathers and dried leaves. So symmetrical, I think that is the  decorator’s greatest triumph.

Of course you can always improve on perfection.  There is constant re-arranging and enhancing by Mr. B.

I’ll just move this leaf. What a mouthful.

Will this be good enough to woo a lady or two?  Perhaps a  few more pale  accent pieces will make all the difference.

A bit more off-white to contrast with all the blue.

And maybe another stick for the bower itself. That moth eaten ivy  carpet has to go.

Just one more stick.

Ah yes, that’s the spot.

Yes, that’s better I think.

Only one problem, the ladies have not shown any interest whatsoever. For heaven’s sake! What more can a fellow do?

Might have to try Tinder!

Oh well, just have to keep trying. Let’s hope blue hasn’t gone out of fashion. Or, even worse; that non-biodegradable plastic is being rejected by enlightened female bowerbirds.

Sitting (very) pretty.

Hang on….is that a prospective bride I see lurking?

Oh my goodness. A bird in the bower and one in the wings. His cup runneth over with joy.

Mr S Bowerbird doing well.
Well done mate!

I think it was these sulphur crested cockatoo feathers that made all the difference. It’s not all about blue!
