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.

Here is some rare footage of an Australian male black satin bower bird along with it's green speckled female mate working on their bower in my backyard. I did a film some years back of the same nest but not so much good footage. This is obviously now a protected site within the Hacking River Protected Environment Catchment near Helensburgh, New South Wales, Australia.
