Satin Bower Bird

Yesterday I heard a thump as a bird flew into a window. She was okay, just a bit stunned it seemed.

 

She eventually flew off after a couple of bloopers where she flew into the wall, then flew into the veggie garden fenceā€¦ must be that new extreme sports flying.

I had no idea what kind of bird she was, so I posted a link to the photo on a bird watchers forum and in no time some kind soul had helped me identify her as a female satin bower bird. Gotta love technology for making it so easy :)
