Today I was educated in the way of the bowerbird by sculptor, artist, and all round creative type Jane Gillings, who sent me this Regent Bowerbird. It was Jane who made this beauty that I posted about a few days ago.
" We have quite a few native Australian bowerbirds, the blue one is the Satin bowerbird,
the black and yellow (above) is the Regent bb. I like the Satin because it collects blue things and regularly appears in my dreams"
I wish Satin bowerbirds appeared in my dreams, I'd better get cracking on the cheese before bed.
Thank you very much to Jane, I look forwad to seeing more of her birds, as she's exhibiting in November.
