Shame about their choice of food, though - when it involves carefully grown tomatoes, brassicas, beans, grapes - anything we're looking forward to eating, basically. Suppose we (well, the gardener, who is not me), just has to grow extra to share . . .

Hahaha not a problem unless you have carefully grown tomatoes and other fresh produce. Anything I've ever tried to grow seems to die long before I need to worry about sharing with bowerbirds regardless of how careful I am!
