Mossgrove Bird Watching

    Some of the bird life in the gardens.

    Satin Bowerbirds

     Satin Bowerbirds are among the many bird species that make Mossgrove their home.  Spring sees at least five bowers in the gardens.

    We have managed to capture a rare glimps of a male bowerbird in its 6th molt.  This is when the male grows its breeding plumage.
    Male Satin Bowerbirds take 6-7 years to reach maturity.mossgrove satin bowerbird
