Into the Bower 1 of 2

Bower birds create these beautiful sculptures, collecting anything that is blue and adorning the ground with them, to entice the female to enter and hopefully select the male builder as a mate. If successful, a second (more conventional) nest will be built, off the ground, to be used to raise the young. Notice how the blue pieces increase in numbers as you approach the Bower.
