CommentOne of the iconic birds of northern Cape York, much sought-after by visiting birders. The bower consists of a raised 'avenue' of sticks with a 'stage' at one end where green fruits and leaves are arranged by the male to attract the attention of visiting females. We were fortunate to see a female visit the bower and witness the amazing display and vocalization of the male.
