Bowerbirds are commonly known for their unique nesting behavior where the male will build a “bower” structure that he decorates with brightly colored objects to attract a mate.

These bowers are built separately from the nest which is a cup made of sticks in a tree, while the bower resides on the ground. Different bowerbirds like different colors; this particular species decorates their bowers with green objects.
