Bowerbirds: The Art of Seduction
Bowerbirds' antics put the most extravagant of soap operas into the shade. The males are obsessed with sex, and will do anything to get it. They are master decoraters, building elaborate bowers to attract a female. But sometimes neighbouring bowerbirds pay sneaky visits and steal decorations, bright feathers, fruits, flowers to adorn their own nest. They are also birds with all the darker emotions associated with sex: envy and jealousy. They sometimes gang up on an over-successful neighbour. Master storyteller, David Attenborough, as author and presenter, ensures this is a memorable treat.
