Birds of Paradise - a don't miss it video

In the forests of New Guinea, thirty-nine species of the spectacular Bird of Paradise can be found. Only there.

This marvellous video through the efforts of Tim Laman and Ed Scholes, offers us the precious opportunity to sight these unique birds up close, and to marvel at their stunning beauty. How they go about making this record shows true dedication and passion.  How lucky we are, to be able to share their achievements, and in the comfort of our own homes at that.

The wonders of modern technology, and, if you can, do watch it in full-screen mode.

Thanks to Tim and Ed; your video is an award-winner to be sure.

They are amazing birds and quite a lot smaller than you think. I saw some when I lived in New Guinea. These guys are amazing too. What they do is very dangerous and difficult.
