  • Amazing. Bizarre. Extravagant. Some come in shades of florescent blue and midnight black. Some dance like ballerinas, and others make a call like a machine gun. They are like no birds you've ever seen. They are the birds-of-paradise.

    Biologist and explorer Edwin Scholes and Tim Laman spent eight years in New Guinea and Australia observing these birds. They were astonished to learn their secrets. You will be too. Explore this interactive website and watch stunning videos with behind-the-scenes footage of the birds in action.
