Cornell Lab of Ornithology
The Birds of Paradise

When I was at National Geographic Films, I vividly remember first seeing some of this footage of the most exotic, seemingly otherworldly birds, found only in a secret and remote valley in New Guinea’s rainforest. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has just launched its Birds of Paradise Project, sharing this and more footage, proving, once again, that Nature has the greatest and wildest imagination. Full screen and volume up, please. – A.L.

    they ask "What" and "Why" … I answer "Wow" and "Thanks" not out loud, not with such exquisite display of movement and color and shape, but with the conviction that this is indeed being on the edge of forever.
    merci Adam and keep up the good work to the authors.
