Birds of Paradise

Wilson's Bird of ParadiseHere's more about the amazing birds of paradise!

Dancing Birds

What: Birds of paradise are fancy-looking birds that are cousins of crows and jays (Corvids).

Where: These birds are found in tropical forests in New Guinea and Australia.

Claim to fame: There are 40 kinds of birds of paradise, and they all have different colors, different feathers, and different songs. But what's most unusual about these birds is their elaborate courtship displays. There's only one thing fancier than a bird of paradise: a bird of paradise performing for a mate!

You can meet Edwin Scholes (the author of the birds of paradise story in Ranger Rick magazine) and see what he's discovered during his many trips to New Guinea (where most birds of paradise live). Just visit his Web site at www.thebirdsofparadise.org.
