Cornell Lab of OrnithologyThe 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.
