As these are topical, the below snaps from my garden this morning might be of interest.



Of more interest is that I showed this chatline pics of a similar transitional male at the same bower almost exactly 2 years ago.  That now full-plumaged male is still around.  At 9 years it would be too young to be the father of the present 7-year old.  The bird now shown has probably been one of the yellow-billed green students at the bower over the last 3 or so years.


More bowerbirds around, more transitional males.
