Colin et al,
Golden Bowerbirds are active at their bowers already but in the cool wet weather we've been having they are not very active. Once the sun comes out they'll be hard at it again. Anyone going to t Hypipamee in the next month and a half should examine the laurels around the picnic area as they are ripening and will bring in all four local species of bowerbird to the fruit.

The bower I gave directions to a couple of years ago has had a change of ownership. I cannot say much about his personality yet as I have not spent much time there but I doubt he is as obliging as the last bird was. I have other bowers too including the male with which I have a special relationship but I hope everyone understands that I am not disclosing all of those bowers and I request my guests also not to publicise their locations.

In case the child care manager, with whom I had a lengthy discussion about sharing professional skills and knowledge, is still on Birding-Aus, please contact me again as I have German relatives heading your way next month and free babysitting would be a wonderful addition to their holiday.
