A Day In The A Blue Mountains.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block. I share with you my patchwork & quilting, knitting, paper crafts, cooking and life in general.

Welcome Mrs Satin Bowerbird.


Capturing these birds on camera is proving more difficult than I imagined.
I swear that there were anything up to twenty of the satin bowerbirds in and around my garden and all three neighbours' gardens.
The males seem to be more elusive than the female (pictured above).  Of course this could also be a male juvenile of the species, their feathers turning a satin blue black with maturity, which can take up to seven years. 
To lure them to a more suitable site for photographing, I have left some offerings out for the male...blue objects...with which they decorate their bower.
I will keep you posted.
