This is described in HANZAB Vol 7A, page 898 (under "Bowers"), so yes, it is
probably typical. It takes about 7 years age for them develop full blue
plumage, so they practice in that time.

This summer, an immature bower bird (ie in green plumage) built a rather
poor bower in a garden on the outskirts of Macgregor.

Is this typical?
