Re: [BKARTS] House of Books



Hi Alice

The satin bowerbird, which can be found not that far from where I live
(Brisbane, Australia) has developed more ''sophisticated'' tastes. His bower
is decorated in blue, but his local materials now include blue biro lids,
milk bottle tops, foil and food wrappers! Waste not, want not.

Cheers
Helen

Thanks for the delightful respite, Henrietta.

Isn't it amazing what people and creatures do?
Make artist books, rooms out of beads, or houses of wooden books.
The male Bowerbird in the forests of New Guinea spends nine months
building his spectacular nest, said to be the most beautiful
architectural creations
in nature. Then he decorates it with shiny treasures, such as the
iridescent wing cases
of beetles, flowers or objects of a certain color to attract the female.
