"Planet Earth" - Birds of Paradise

Did you watch "Planet Earth" on the Discovery Channel on Sunday? The photography on this special about our planet is amazing. The BBC-produced documentary was 5 years in the making and includes many never before filmed natural events like African Dogs hunting Impalas and some never filmed birds-of-paradise doing their courtship rituals. Here's a clip of the birds-of-paradise. The Superb Bird-of-Paradise is unreal. This clip is narrated by David Attenborough, but the US version of the show is narrated by Sigourney Weaver. Now, I know she can kick alien butt, but she's no David Attenborough.
