“Male bowerbirds use their intelligence to impress the females, constructing elaborate structures called bowers to attract mates. They are not on master builders, but also accomplished artists. Males of some species decorate their bowers lavishly with flower petals and sparkly man-made objects.”

What Makes Bowerbirds Such Good Artists?

“Female bowerbirds move from bower to bower, inspecting male bowerbirds’ creations and the males themselves. Females often stand within the avenue of the bower, from which they can peruse the court and the male (who will display to her from there, often throwing his more brightly coloured objects around).”

    I need a Disney-style movie of one of those birds going through a crisis because he doesn't find its interior design skills to attract the true love of his life

    If the female isn't going to use the nest that the male has made, then what's the point of making the nest in the first place?

    Hello people at Seeker. You may not see this comment in the massive sea we call the comment section. But I have always wondered why everything seems to have a spherical shape. Our Sun, Earth Mars, even protons and electrons are depicted as spheres. So my question would be is, why is this circular shape so common in the Universe? why not a cube or cylinder etc. I would appreciate an answer but I totally understand if you guys don't find this comment.

    btw Awesome Channel keep up the good work.

    When I watch a science video, I expect to see actual footage of the topic whenever possible. This is a nice art project, but doesn't showcase the behavior or habitat of the animals themselves.

    Bower birds need meninism. Those female bowers are a bunch of useless gold digging ingrates.
