Original HBW caption:
The Regent Bowerbird has a longer, finer bill than most bowerbirds, and is something of a nectar specialist. It also catches arthropods, primarily by gleaning and hawking. Arthropods form a significant part of the diet of adult and young bowerbirds. While bowerbirds obtain some of their insect prey, such as flying termites, by sallying, snatching or hawking, more typically they forage by searching and gleaning on live and dead foliage, tree branches and trunks, epiphytes, flowers, and forest-floor leaf litter. Large insects such as grasshoppers and beetles are carried to the ground, shaken and knocked violently to remove the wings, and torn to pieces.
