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