Binna Burra's resident male satin bower bird, Nigel, doing what he does best. He's gotten his name, Nigel No Friends from many unsuccessful bowers until, ironically, moving next to the 'honeymoon suite', where incredibly he has become rather popular. He is the most dominant male in the area and any competing male often finds his bower destroyed if he dares build it too close.
Couldn't believe I got Nigel's' dance on camera. I wouldn't have gotten as close if I realised the female was around. It's important not to interrupt nature! All of his material possessions have been collected by him and are organised exactly the way he wants - all for the ladies.
Cmon guys, step up your game!
