Satin bowerbird (Ptilonorhynchus violaceus)

The satin bowerbird is a bowerbird endemic to eastern Australia. Mature males have clear blue eyes and are uniformly coloured black. Immature males are coloured and marked the same as females and are often mistaken for them.Females have a distinctively green/brown or otherwise entirely brown upper body and lighter under body with a distinct reticulated or scalloped pattern, but with very striking lilac eyes. They are predominantly frugivorous as adults, though they also eat leaves and a small amount of seeds and insects. As nestlings, however, they are largely fed on beetles, grasshoppers and cicadas until they can fly. Like all bowerbirds, the satin bowerbird shows highly complex courtship behaviour. Males build specialized stick structures, called bowers, which they decorate with blue, yellow, and shiny objects if these are available, including berries, flowers, and even ballpoint pens, drinking straws and other discarded plastic items like clothes pegs. As the males mature they use more blue objects than other colours. Females visit these and choose which male they will allow to mate with them. In addition to building their bowers, males carry out intense behavioural displays called dances to woo their mates, but these can be treated as threat displays by the females. Nestbuilding and incubation are carried out by the females alone.
