Highly edited photograph ahead....

For so long I have been attempting to photograph the elusive bower birds that frequent our garden.
Never in the past thirteen years have I seen one eating from the lorikeet feeder.  
To spot one this morning, only metres from our dinning room window, was certainly a surprise.
The fact that the bower bird has come to the feeder might be a reflection of the reduction of food in the wild - due to the dry weather and the recent bush fires.
But, the bird did not stay long and I had to creep around the corner of the house to take photographs.  The result...another bad photograph of the female or young male satin bowerbird. (The mature male satin bowerbird is a beautiful shiny blue-black).
