  1. The top image looks like an Andy Goldsworthy piece. It seems bowerbirds and installation artists share some behaviors, although I'd guess the bowerbirds get more tail. :)

  2. Wow thats so cool. I love the first image, I thought it was an artist's sculpture at first

  3. it is just amazing how this birds build stuff!! omg!!
