Birds-of-Paradise

Waggling wonder

Take a front row seat in the Arfak Mountains as the Western Parotia performs for a female perched above him. He begins his display with a bow, then transitions into a "ballerina dance," which is full of delicate steps and head waggles. Filmed by Tim Laman in August of 2009.
