Satin Bowerbird
Sharing some of my mandarin with me awhile back :)

Their eyes always amaze me. When they turn around 6 -7 years old the males turn the satin black like the adult male in the last photo.

Scientific name: Ptilonorhynchus violaceus

My lady would go absolutely bonkers if she had anything like that flitting around the yard.

Beautiful birds and stunning photos!

Lovely pictures Jim - that's an amazing color transformation they do as they mature.
