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.


Not available for shipment outside the U.S. and Canada.

      Birds Take 2nd Fiddle to Researchers

      Pros

      • 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.

          I have 20 of my own rare birds in an aviary at my own nature center .I observe mating behavior dances right here but not so complicated. I have shared this with visitors.

              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!

                  We are local birders. The video was amazing, exciting, beautiful, and almost surreal. So enjoyed the video. We are sharing it with family and friends. What a magnificant world we reside in.

                  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.
