Western Bowerbird (Chlamydera guttata)

Often inhabits gorges and rocky hills, in semi-arid regions where native figs are found. Some species adapted to areas with dry, open scrub and woodland.

The Western Bowerbird is found in the desert region of Central Northern Territory and north-west region of Western Australia, often near permanent waterholes.

They have a loud harsh call. When displaying in the bower, the ca;; varies to a churring, grinding sound, some sounding like a feral cat.

The Western Bowerbird has a characteristic erectile iridescent lilac/pink nape crest, which is smaller in the female, with less of a marked pink crest. The immature bird lacks the crest.
