Satin bowerbird on the back fence, then moved to a tree on the other side of the fire break. a female or a young male bird?
Hi Thomas. Can you be sure this is a female bird? It is quite possible, but you may or may not know that immature males (up to 5 years old) have the same plumage as the females - referred to collectively as 'green' birds.

Males are far more wary than females.
Lots of females around.
Males do not turn blue until about 5th year. Explaining why common to see many green birds. This bird could be young male.
