Amazing watercolour of a bird nest by artist Michelle SaintOnge. This is a bowerbird nest. The bowerbird is renowned for it's unique courtship behaviour, where males build a structure and decorate it with sticks and brightly coloured objects in an attempt to attract a mate.

Bowerbird males build these elaborate structures and then decorated them with colourful objects. While I painted I imagined this guy built a seaside bower for his intended and then decorated it with sea glass. If I were a female bowerbird I’d be impressed.
