Bowerbirds

Bowerbirds 之前已經在電視上看過了BBC的紀錄片了, 不過剛在國家地理網上又看到了介紹:

Bowerbirds 可在新幾內亞和澳洲找到:

The bowerbirds have an Austro-Papuan distribution, with ten species endemic to New Guinea, eight endemic to Australia and two found in both

Bowerbirds 神奇之處是他們是天才建築師, 為了吸引女性, 他們會建一巢(請看圖), 外面加很多裝飾品(有石塊/水果/果實/花葉/汽水罐… 所有有顏色的東西), 而顏色的挑選完全是由男性認為什麼顏色可以吸引自己喜愛的女性, 而已這些個人口味完全是從遺傳因子而來的.

另外EDWARD說 Bowerbirds有另外一個絕技,  他們可以扮其他雀鳥的聲音, 甚至汽車的聲音!!!
