My morning walk today, on the Balcolyn shoreline on Lake Macquarie, had me
hearing what I thought to be a Whistling Kite. On closer inspection it
proved to be a Satin Bowerbird. I'm not sure if it was a female or an
immature male but the mimicry was quite impressive. What other evidence is
there of mimicry in this species?
