Satin Bower Bird

Our resident Satin Bower bird has built a new bower just over our back fence. He has collected lots of blue things to decorate it with. Every day he re-arranges the decorations to look just right (to attract the ladies).

oh the bird makes a nest on the ground? I feel it's dager because cat or dogs attack the nest easily.

Oh, the bower is not a nest. The male bird builds and decorates his bower to attract and mate with the female birds. The females then go off and build their own nest, lay eggs and raise the babies without any help from the male.
