Can also be found in gardens and urban parks within its range. Males decorate their avenue bowers with pale objects such as small bones and shells. Very similar to but darker than Spotted Bowerbird. Note range. Western Bowerbird is found in central Australia and parts of the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Loud calls include hisses and rasping squawks.
