green bird in tree

Female satin bowerbird.

Affectionately known as meow-bird.

Bowerbirds are mimics and meow-bird has a cat in her range.

The male satin bowerbird often gets all the attention because of its deep blue/black lustrous sheen.

And its bower making talents. However, I think the females are just as beautiful.

A few weeks ago we discovered meow-bird had damaged her lower beak making it more difficult to pick up food morsels and sticks for her nest.

But we keep an eye on her and she is doing well.
