By goso
An Australian blue eyed female "Bowerbird" - this one aka "Tubby", or maybe she's pregnant. Their nest "bower" is a patch of ground usually under bushes, where they store their stolen colourful items such as blue drinking straws or bottle caps etc. etc. The male is a satin black colour.
In Australia we call anyone who is a compulsive "storer" or collector, a "Bower Bird"
