Introducing Mr Satin bowerbird outside his Blue Mountains home. His address is No. 1 Memorial Park. Blackheath 2785.
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.
Yes, he has those sought after water glimpses from his front door..
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.
And maybe another stick for the bower itself. That moth eaten ivy carpet has to go.
Ah yes, that’s the spot.
Only one problem, the ladies have not shown any interest whatsoever. For heaven’s sake! What more can a fellow do?
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?
TO BE CONTINUED………
SEPTEMBER 2019….OFF TO AN AMAZING START!
Oh my goodness. A bird in the bower and one in the wings. His cup runneth over with joy.
I think it was these sulphur crested cockatoo feathers that made all the difference. It’s not all about blue!
