Regent Bowerbird by annied

Regent Bowerbird

Endemic to Australia, the regent bowerbird is found throughout the rainforests and leafy coasts of eastern Australia, all the way up in central Queensland, and down into New South Wales.

They display striking sexual dimorphism – the males, as seen above, are covered in silky black plumage, with glossy golden feathers on the ends of their wings, and pouring down over their heads like a thick, molten crown. The females, of course, are a dull, speckledy olive colour.
This is outrageously beautiful! FAV!

I just don’t get the bird world’s way of making the males so pretty and the females so dull. Lord knows, in the human world that is not the case (well, for the most part). 😊 He’s a beautiful bird and one I have never heard of!
