The Birds of Paradise, New Guinea Rain Forests
Nice to report something genuinely spectacular a university is backing. (Link just below, lots to see, and you can download the bird songs!) In my search for the care and feeding of the plant, Bird of Paradise, I accidentally uncovered a thrilling quest by Cornell Lab scientist Ed Scholes and National Geographic photographer Tim Laman who explore creatures which are so uniquely formed, their behavior so startling, it challenges the imagination.
Click on the link below, then hit ‘INTRODUCTION’ on the top of their webpage, and watch the short video. There is a lot more, too. And all this is a special feast for photographers. What equipment! If you’ve got a cat or dog in the house, watch them when the bird calls sound…..
