BIRDS OF A FEATHER WEEK!
This week during our travels we’re celebrating Valentine’s week with Birds of a Feather. We’re off to find birds with elaborate mating rituals and those that mate for life. We’re also going to have our popular color your valentine cards! First up- Birds of Paradise. These amazing birds live in the untouched rainforests of Papua New Guinea. They are amazing looking birds come in all colors, shapes and sizes. Birds of Paradise are most famous for their mating dances and rituals which are extremely elaborate and complicated! The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has done some great field work with these birds! We can’t top these videos so we’re posting some of our favorites! Anyone out there want to try their hand at the Bird of Paradise dance?
