SpeciesSericulus aureus
LocalityWest Papua, Indonesia
DescriptionOne of the most brilliantly colored of all the bowerbirds, the Masked Bowerbird, prepares only a rather simplistic 'U-shaped' avenue of sticks which is adorned with several leaves and blue-berries. The extravagance of bowerbird displays appears to be inversely proportional to the gaudiness of their plumage.
