Sounds & Calls
Spotted Bowerbird (Chlamydera maculata)
I left my microphones for a few hours near an active bower, and recorded a range of calls as the owner attended to his decorations and displayed to visiting females. You can listen to some of these audio recordings below. The first two samples document two birds interacting together near the bower, possibly male and female. The third recording is an example of the Spotted Bowerbird’s mimicry skills, with a nice imitation of a Whistling Kite’s call.
