The Satin Bowerbird is found in rainforest and eucalyptus forest in north Queensland and then from southern Queensland along the east coast of Australia into Victoria.
The males are characterised by their glossy blue-black plumage, while females are more of a dull green. In breeding season, males construct an elaborate bower of twigs, which they paint with a mixture of saliva, pine leaves, berries and charcoal. They then decorate the bower with items like cicada or other insect pupae and berries but have a particularly strong attraction to blue objects such as blue flowers (yellow are also used). When the birds are living close to suburban areas the bowers are often decorated with manufactured blue objects such as plastic bottle caps, pegs, cigarette lighters and plastic packaging.
Here are some shots of a male satin bowerbird at Pebbly Beach, together with a shot of a female that I came across last year in the National Art Gallery sculpture garden.
