A couple of Satin Bowerbirds have been visiting me of late, they are either females or young males.  I am so jealous of their beautiful violet eyes.

At the distinctive whistling/warbling sound I have been trained to drop everything, go out to the verandah and emit either a banana or some grapes.

Here is a picture of one of the birds visiting at the moment.

A couple of years ago a glossy, male Satin Bowerbird was a regular visitor around August.

He was not shy at all.  Here he is having lunch with a greedy rainbow lorikeet, and a startled male Victoria’s Riflebird.
