The Kid Should See This

The mating dance of the male Victoria’s Riflebird

From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Birds of Paradise project, watch this recently uploaded clip of a Victoria’s Riflebird male performing a mating dance for an interested female. Peekaboo.

We’ve seen a glimpse of this dance in the Lab’s dance compilation video, one of our favorites.

There’s more nature in the archives.
