Male Bowerbirds Impress the Ladies

Want to come over and see my place? I designed it with you in mind, and if you step inside, I can show you a good time. As a matter of fact, you probably heard about my reputation for pleasing women...

Male bowerbirds impress females with their bachelor pads and courtship rituals. Darwinists try to hijack what is observed, but this shows design.

How did you like my impression of the great bowerbird? I've seen human versions of the male bowerbird, and it's tempting anthropomorphize by assigning human behaviors and my values to a critter, so let's move on.

These are down 'Straya and New Guinea way, and are grouped with certain catbirds that have a greater sense of morality (sorry, there I go again), what with being monogamous and all. There are ten species of bowerbirds, and they get their name because, well, they build bowers. They work hard to make them aesthetically pleasing. If you set down your ring and can't find it later, it may not have been a packrat that picked it up, but a bowerbird getting the place all gussied up. Yes, they use a variety of things to decorate their bachelor pads.

It's also interesting that in their efforts to impress the womenfolk, they use modified visual perspective in building bowers. Humans do this through creativity and choice, bowerbirds have it built in. They also were designed by our Creator to have complex courtship rituals. Darwinists claim that all this is evidence for evolution, but some of us need more than your say-so, Chuck.
Before the discovery of bowerbirds’ optical effects, only humans were known to design optical illusions. But does the bowerbird possess an artistic sense like humans?

While a common bird to Australia, the bowerbird shows an uncommon ability to design bowers—structures that look like two-sided thatch huts—to impress possible mates. The males spend much of their days gathering material to build and decorate the bowers with items from sticks and acorns to flowers and shells. The better the bower, the better the chance of winning a mate.
