Join National Geographic photographer Tim Laman and ornithologist Ed Scholes into the jungles of one of last wild places on earth—New Guinea. Far-flung islands, impenetrable jungle and extreme elevations all create areas of isolation where ordinary birds have evolved into some of the most beautifully bizarre species on earth. Digital explorers on an old-fashioned quest, Tim and Ed have survived everything the jungle has to throw at them to become first in the world to capture all 39 species of Birds of Paradise on film.

      Birds Take 2nd Fiddle to Researchers

      • Beautiful Cinematography

      Cons

      • Too Much On Researchers

      Best Uses

        Comments about Winged Seduction: Birds of Paradise DVD:

        There is an increasing trend in nature programs to extol the efforts of the researchers rather than concentrating on what was learned about the subject of the program. Less than half of this film is devoted to actual footage of bird behavior. It needs more about the birds themselves and less about the researchers reactions to the effort obtaining the information.

              Comments about Winged Seduction: Birds of Paradise DVD:

              Watch this DVD to see the most incredible, surreal birds you could ever imagine! Just as Australia is home to its own unique species of animals, these birds of the remote jungles of New Guinea can be found nowhere else on Earth. Some of their bizarre showy decoration seems like it could even be a detriment to survival (it could get the birds tangled in nearby branches, for instance). It's truly hard to comprehend that they're real!

                  I didn't care for the adverts for other videos to start the DVD. Bird photos shouldn't have been added at the end. Way too much on just getting to the birds and human participation. Over all it was good but not great. Photos and bird videos WERE great though.

                  Known for their vivid plumes and strange courtship rituals, birds-of-paradise are among the world's rarest and most fascinating. There are only 39 known species of birds of paradise, which are found only in New Guinea and parts of Australia. These remarkable birds are just one of the species captured here in a Victorian-style illustration that we've turned into a vintage-style wooden puzzle. Each of the 250 pieces is a different shape, and there are many bird-shaped "whimsy" pieces found throughout.

For almost two decades, the population of monk seals has plummeted continuously and is now on the brink of extinction.
