Author's notes

Despite being overrun with bowerbirds in the vege garden regularly, this is only the second bower I have ever found on our 40ha block. It's slim pickings for blue plastic in Brogo, so this fella has had to make up the deficit with a yellow clothes peg. The bower is located right under a barbed wire fence, which must make displaying at it a bit fraught.
