Australian Satin Bower Birds

In March/April the Bower Birds have made another bower in our yard, so now there are two. Last year's bower is still in use, but I don't know if it's used by the same male or if there are now two males. It was the first time the Bower Birds have built a bower in our yard, and I've been able to witness an amazing display of courtship. The male bird collects anything that is blue. I've put out blue bottle tops, blue pegs and blue tiddly winks, and they're now all at his bower, along with pieces of blue hayband. I also noticed they liked picking up some yellow leaves. They are really pests of birds, eating flowers, carrots in the garden, and any cabbages or green vegetables in the vegie garden.
