green nugget experiment


Tin with green nuggets (before)

Here I was testing to what extent bowerbirds would steal objects from other bowers. This container of green glass nuggets was placed equidistant between bowers 5, 12 and 4 (which was quite close to bower 12). The bower 12 bird took many of the nuggets. In the end two nuggets were moved from bower 12 to bower 4. Not as much as I expected.
