National Geographic Live
Birds of Paradise: Extreme, Bizarre, Extraordinary
Tim Laman and Ed Scholes
Renowned photographer and forest canopy researcher Tim Laman and ornithologist Ed Scholes will soon publish a major National Geographic book, Birds of Paradise Revealed: Extreme, Bizarre, Extraordinary, taking us deep into the New Guinea rainforests to observe these astonishing avian creatures. Evolved to attract mates with their extraordinarily colorful feathers, which they display in dances executed with ballerina-like grace, these birds are a living laboratory of evolution. Meet all 39 species and enjoy their secret lives, bizarre displays, and dazzling courtship antics in breathtaking visuals.
