The Vogelkop Bowerbird

The Vogelkop Bowerbird spends it's entire life building a structure around the base of a tree. He lines it with moss and displays things which he collects outside in a meticulously constructed arragement. It is essentially a love shack, not a nest.

The quality of his display and bower determine whether or not he will get a mate. And that is brilliant.
