Thanks John, I used to see some of these birds pre fires when there was a bower constantly in my neighbour’s garden, but not since with the bower built there last late winter/early spring after a 14 year gap having been disused since October.
Mary Virr was fortunate enough to follow the moulting process in her Kambah garden over a 2 month period from late January to mid March, as published in CBN, 29 (1) 33 (2004).

Attached is a photo a friend sent me of a Satin Bowerbird just coming into its true colours.
Not something I’ve seen before that I thought might be of interest to some.
