The male bowerbirds have their work cut out for them, literally, as the females are largely impressed by their intelligence and knack for decorating and dancing, as opposed to their athletic abilities. When wooing and winning the attention of the females, the male bowerbirds will battle it out by any means necessary to prove that he is a good provider, ultimately constructing nuptial bowers and artistically embellishing them.
