Gooday all,
Over the last few months I have observed a Great Bowerbird at its bower adjacent to a domestic residence. What drew me to observe this bower was the fact that it was and in mangroves at the side of the Thomas St drain. On arrival of the big high tides the bower would get submerged yet the bird continued to maintain and add to the bower.
All this to the delight of the people occupying the near by residence with 2 dogs in an enclosed yard.
