I did an image search today for the nest of the Western Bowerbird and all I
found was pictures of bowers.

So I went out and found this female preparing a nest. Much smaller than I
had imagined for this bird, but this is clearly her nest as she was busily
fixing it up and collecting building material. The tree is a Jacaranda,
definitely not an Alice Springs native, but I guess it serves the purpose.
