The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is offering a glimpse of recent work recording on film and video the 39 species of Birds of Paradise. This is in anticipation of publication of a book about these amazing and unique creatures. The video is worth a look, maybe two. There is nothing else in the bird world -- the entire world -- like Birds of Paradise. Other short bird videos also are available on the site.
