Any one who has read my blog knows that I absolutely love the Birds of Paradise of New Guinea (who doesn't?). National Geographic's July issue has a great article on these unique birds which can be read online at their web site. There were some really cool pictures in the magazine which can be seen on their web site too. The article also features researcher Edwin Scholes of the NY Museum of Natural History who has a web site about his research. The site includes videos of the mating displays of a few species and audio.
