Bachelor Pad

I like to visit the library and borrow random books that catch my eye. In the Nature section I always find something interesting. Yesterday I picked up a book called Headless Males Make Great Lovers: And Other Unusual Natural Histories (by Marty Crump) which chronicles comically bizarre animal behaviour. I’m only into the first chapter (mating rituals) and read this fascinating story about the Bowerbird. This drab-coloured bird uses flowers, stones, mushrooms~ anything it can find, really~ to build elaborately decorated displays, all to attract females. I had to see it to believe it.
