The bird who decorated nest with fruit and rubbish to attract a mate
This artistic bird hoped to attract the attention of passing females by decorating his home with colourful fruit and discarded rubbish.
The Brown Gardener spent up to ten months building the intricate tent-like home - known as "bower" - using twigs.
He then scoured the surrounding woodland for fruit, clothing, junk, and leaves and arranged them in neat piles outside.
Some of the items - in bright shades of blue, yellow, pink, orange, and purple - are likely to have been stolen from rivals.
