Although my backyard is not the normal suburban block. Up in the Blue Mountains we have a very diverse selection of birds. These guys are Satin Bower birds. The male who appears black until the sun hits him, builds this courting tunnel known as a bower. It is not a nest, just a bachelor pad for him to show off his collection of blue nick knacks. He has the ideal life, shows off, has sex with a multitude of females and no responsibility towards the family! The hen builds the nest and raises the chicks on her own. These guys are pretty flighty, so I just took my time and waited for them to get in position and for the sun to co-operate.......what do you think? Oh, yeah, taken with the D2X medium size file, 400 f/2.8 AF-S 11, SB 800 for fill light (don't remember if it fired or not, probably did) Off my back deck. This guy has been co existing on my block with my 4 pug dogs for the past 5 or 6 years, the dogs steal his pegs and stuff and he flies into the house to retrieve them. Who would want to live anywhere else?
