The Fruit Picker 2016

Every year we have a beautiful female bower bird come into our yard and use our bright blue bird bath, steal a couple of fruits off our strawberry fruit tree (yes, there is such a thing) and then vanish. We have never seen her partner, but we know they are in the area, we have never seen a bower, just her with her amazingly dazzling ultraviolet blue eyes. She is such a pretty bird, I am not surprised the boys make such an effort for her.
