Lesser Birds of Paradise

 

Birds of Paradise have been a life-long passion and the Lesser Bird of Paradise is one of the most spectacular birds, particularly when a group of males are displaying by bouncing around in the top of a tree fanning and shimmering their flimsy golden plumes.

When displaying, their loud calls echo through the forest and can be heard from quite a distance. Watching these birds in the Jimmi Valley in New Guinea was the inspiration for this painting in which a female has been attracted to the displaying males.
