This specimen of Regent Bowerbird was owned by Mary Jane Holdsworth. It was bequeathed to the museum in 1918, along with several other specimens of bird from Australia. Mrs Holdsworth probably kept her collection to brighten up her house with colours that weren't, at the time, possible to replicate artificially.
