    I think this Regent Bowerbird is trying to decide if the water is tasty enough for her!!!

    At last the male Regent Bowerbird appeared. Really handsome birds these, aren't they.

    Much plainer than the male a female Regent Bowerbird has a dark cap where the male has a yellow crown.

    I'd met up with Hans and Judy again and they were looking at this splendid Regent Bowerbird. Hans got them at his forest waterhole and it was lovely to be able to see one again.

    The last for now

    A male Regent Bowerbird was the last species I photographed on this first visit to Hans' waterhole. But I was back there a few more times.

    Then his lady arrived. The female Regent Bowerbird has a black cap, replacing the male's red-spotted yellow crown. It is the main distinguishing feature from other similar looking females.

    At least I think so. Surely Regent Bowerbirds deserve that title. He was the second visitor to the water hole that morning.
  9. Black cap

    .... that means this is the female Regent Bowerbird. She arrived first that morning, so hopefully hubby will be along shortly.

    Also holding court with Hans and Judy was this stunning Regent Bowerbird. OK I'd seen one before in Hans forest, but they're really beautiful and I would never tire of seeing one.

    Told you he'd

    bring his lady along. It's the dark patch on the crown that is the ID feature for the female Regent Bowerbird.

    These Green Catbirds are the most beautiful colour I think. He showed well with the Regent Bowerbird behind him.
  13. Isn't he handsome

    Isn't he handsome

    I reckon he was one of the stars to visit the water hole. Mind there were a few.... but he has to be up there somewhere LOL. He sometimes came with his girlfriend, so you'll no doubt get to see a picture of a female too at some point.

    I looked for this bird for 5 days and finally I gave up at dusk and decided to drive back to my caravan . I had not travelled 200 metres when this bird popped out and sat on a roadside branch.I jumped out of the car almost before it had stopped and managed a couple of photos before it...

    Always good to see these busy birds - note the tangerine highlight on his forelock - shows how popular he is with the ladies.

    I'm assuming a female from book descriptions but could be an immature male.

    Absolutely stunning birds. They were willing to pose for my Macro lens in exchange for sultanas.

    Pulled this one out from my collection of slides. Scanned at 2400dpi but still disappointing. Taken at O'Reillys Guest House - Lamington National Park Queensland Australia, on a 3 month camping trip around Australia in 1999. O'Reillys Guest House is a place not to be missed.

    Rent Bowerbirds are avenue bower builders,building the smallest avenue of all the species.However,what they lack in building skills is made up by an incredibly colourful plumage.

    Regent Bowerbird

    A male Regent Bowerbird is shown in its avenue bower,which the bird constructs on the forest floor to attract females for mating.Nests are built in trees and usually some distance away.
