You 100% sure its a Satin Bowerbird.

Here is a picture of what our Satin Bowerbirds look like in Qld.

If it is, they sure do look different.

Dev - what aare the differences that you see; that scalloping on the body is very distinct; the eye colour is very close; the green brown upper body is also similar; yours is a mature bird and the other bird looks younger

It is a Satin Bowerbird! I think the camera make's it look slightly different. Also they do vary across their range but not by much at all. The age of the bird also contributes. However there isn't really any bird that looks remotely similar to the female Satin.

It is a Satin Bowerbird, cannot tell if male or female.

Here is a picture I took Friday 17-10-14 at Maiala Picnic Ground, Mt Glorious, Qld.

It is turning into a Male. Notice the beak is getting lighter in colour.

How do you remove duplicates?
