TEXT ONE

He Made This Screen
by Marianne Moore

not of silver nor of coral,
but of weatherbeaten laurel.

Here, he introduced a sea
uniform like tapestry;

here, a fig-tree; there, a face;
there, a dragon circling space—

designating here, a bower;
there, a pointed passion-flower.

10,000 Birds | Great Bower

“…A week later there was very little evidence of the second bower and the current bower is overflowing with “treasures”. It would have been incredible to film the process over the previous two weeks of moving items and dismantling and reinforcing the bower.

This male Great Bowerbird likes to collect the usual items that are green and white, but due to its closeness to human habitation it is able to collect a variety of items beyond the usual Nickernuts, bones, rocks and shells. The white tool is used for adjusting your reticulation.

Due to houses being built in the area it had managed to collect a nice supply of tech screws, nails and washers.

To the edge it has a collection of green glass, which is being kept separate from the other items. There are glass bottle ends, glass beads and glass marbles. There is also a champagne bottle top metal surround and some aluminium foil. A variety of green plastic items are also kept in this area of the bower.

The male Great Bowerbird is constantly rearranging its bower and trying to improve its chances of attracting a mate.”
