You’re probably wondering what a Vogelkop Bowerbird is. Â I had never heard of them either until I saw them on Life, the latest Discovery Channel series. Â In this particular episode, they profile these Bowerbirds. Â The Bowerbirds win their mate by decorating their nest in different styles. Â Each bird uses different ‘knick-knacks’ from around the forest to create their own style. Â They are competing with several other birds in the ‘neighborhood’Â doing the same thing. So whoever comes up with the nicest, most attractive nest wins the buyer, I mean mate. Â So it appears the Vogelkop Bowerbirds are the original stagers. Â Maybe we could learn a lesson or two from these veterans, although I recommend leaving the deer dung outside.
