Birds of Paradise

There is a newly published book, a collaboration between the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Geographic that looks quite amazing.  Tim Scholes, photographer and Edwin Laman, ornithologist have produced a comprehensive look at 39 species of Birds of Paradise found exclusively in New Guinea.

Birds of Paradise are especially known for male plumage and elaborate mating dances.
These videos give us a taste of what it's all about. More information can be found here
