Last year you met our bowerbird (“He’ Back”), and admired his antics and his collection of bling.
I told you he had thieved tomatoes, and bits of metal and a couple of nuts from the workshop; and we all thought this was cute.
Well this year he has crossed the line.
This is his bower this year:
There are over 70 – that’s right seventy – galvanised nuts in there. Not many in our workshop but the bowerbird has 70.
His stash is becoming a veritable hardware store.
Want a split pin? Talk to the bird.
How about a stainless steel shackle to fix that leaky trough? Talk to the bird.
Maybe, a roofing screw? Talk to the bird.
And the little blighter is still pinching my tomatoes.
Who wants a bowerbird?
