Life’s a Stage | Cornell / National Geographic

March 1, 2019

Though the birds aren’t doing their displays for entertainment value, they have to hone their techniques as much as any human performer, spending hours practicing and maintaining their display courts. In this light-hearted piece we’ve added a musical accompaniment to several birds-of-paradise displays. Will all the dancing pay off? You’ll just have to watch.

There are currently seventy-two short films in the entire Birds-of-Paradise Project playlist, ranging from 26 seconds to 8:29. In the upcoming weeks, we will present some of our favorites.

A film from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. If no film or link appears in this email, go to the blog to view it by clicking on the blog title above. If the film stops & starts in an annoying manner, press pause (lower left double bars ||) to let it buffer and get ahead of you. The lab is a member-supported organization and they welcome your membership and support. [Chuck Almdale]
