Jim Williams has been watching birds and writing about their antics since before "Gilligan's Island" went into reruns. Join him for his unique insights, his everyday adventures and an open conversation about the birds in your back yard and beyond.
Birds of Paradise -- incredibly beautiful and strangely behaving birds found in New Guinea and surrounding islands. Video of these birds is always worth a look. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Geographic are working on a project that has produced some amazing video footage. You can watch it at https://www.youtube.com/embed/REP4S0uqEOc.
When you are finished with this video go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcGPF2gTRrA for a brief discussion of avian DNA prepared by the Bell Museum of Natural History at the University of Minnesota. It features Dr. Robert Zink, professor of biology and a world expert in bird diversity and how we study it.
