Love not war?!

We'd spoken to Ide about the bowers of Satin and Spotted Bowerbirds. She told us of a bower built on the fence-line of a house we would pass on the way out of town, so we made a point of stopping.

We were so glad we did!   This fellow had a similar colour scheme to the guy at the fossicking area but obviously had a better quality of loot because of living in town. He had many more nails and screws - and quite a lot of toy soldiers, at least 20 or 30!  We spotted three teaspoons too and wondered how he managed to carry them!

There was much discussion in the car just after leaving as we speculated about his toy soldier collection - and how he might have transported the spoons!
