Birds Of Paradise on Our Planet

Watch more with these video collections:

Birds of Paradise are more than 39 fantastical species of birds with vibrant colors and superblack feathers, flamboyant plumage, incredible sounds, and eye-catching mating rituals. Descendants of “a single ancestor that resembled a crow,” many of them can be found in New Guinea and northeastern Australia.

In this light-hearted clip from Netflix’s Our Planet, narrated by Sir David Attenborough and debuting on April 5th, 2019, we see three birds of paradise in action: The twelve-wired bird-of-paradise, the black sicklebill, and the western parotia, shown below.
