					Birds of paradise
The birds of paradise are members of the order Passeriformes Paradisaeidae family. They
are found in eastern Indonesia, the islands of Torres Strait, Papua New Guinea, Australia and
east. Bird family members are known as male plumage in many species, especially the fur is
very long and complex that grows from the beak, wings or head. Size of Paradise birds of
paradise from the King at 50 grams and 15 cm to Paradise Part-sickle Black at 110 cm and
Paradise Crest Manukod-rolled at 430 grams.
The most famous birds of paradise are members of the genus Paradisaea, including its type
species, large yellow bird of paradise, Paradisaea Apoda. This species was described from
specimens brought to Europe from trading expeditions. These specimens were prepared by
native traders by removing the wings and legs can be used for decoration. It is not known by
the explorers and led the belief that these birds never landed but remain in the air because
of the feathers. This is the origin name of the bird of paradise ('bird paradise' by the British)
and the name of the type Apoda - which means 'no legs'.
Many species have elaborate mating ritual, mating system types Paradisaea are male birds
gather to compete at the bird show keelokannya for females to mate. While other species
such as the types Cicinnurus and Parotia have irregular mating dance. Males in sexually
dimorphic species are polygamous. Many bird hybrid that is described as new species, and
several species of doubtful kevalidannya.
Number eggs somewhat less certain. In large type, perhaps almost always one egg. Small
type can produce as much as 2-3 eggs.
Crow heaven is generally like in general body-shape, and, indeed, is the sister group to the
corvids (crows and jays). Bird-range in size from-heaven-heaven King Bird-in 50 g (1.8 oz)
and 15 cm (5.9 in) to the Curl-crested Manucode at 44 cm (17 in.) and 430 g (15 oz.) Black
male Sicklebill, with a long tail, is the longest species at 110 cm (43 ins). In all males are
larger and longer than women, the differences ranging from mild to extreme. The wings are
rounded and in some species of structural change on the man to make a sound. There is
considerable variation within the family associated with the form of bills. Claims can be long
and decurved, as in sicklebills and riflebirds, or small and slender like Astrapias. As with body
size on the average bill size varies with sex, although the species in which females have
larger bills than men is more common, especially in species eat insects. For reasons of
female hair usually camouflage blends well. With their habitat, unlike the bright colors of
interest are found in men.
Fur variation between the sexes is closely related to breeding system. The manucodes and
Paradise-crow, which are socially monogamous, sexually monomorphic. So, are the two
types Paradigalla, that polygamy. All species have mostly black fur with a different number
of games in green and blue.
Central-paradise bird-diversity is the large island of New Guinea, all but two genera found in
New Guinea. The two monotypic genera that are not Lycocorax and Semiptera, both
endemic to Maluku, west of New Guinea. From riflebirds in Ptiloris genus, two are endemic
to the forest east coast of Australia, one in Australia and New Guinea, and one only found in
New Guinea. The only other genus for a species outside New Guinea are Manucodia, one
representative found at the northern tip of Queensland. The remaining species is restricted
to New Guinea and several islands in the vicinity. Many species have a very limited range,
particularly a number of species with limited forest habitat types such as mid-montane (like
Sicklebill Black) or island endemics (such as the Wilson-Bird paradise-).
The majority of bird-of-paradise live in tropical forests, including tropical forests, swamps
and moss forests, almost all of their solitary tree dwellers. Some species have been recorded
in coastal mangrove forest. southern species, which Riflebird Paradise Australia, live in sub-
tropical wet forest and subtropical. As a group manucodes is the most plastic in their habitat
requirements, with particular Glossy-mantled Manucode inhabit open forests and savanna
forest. Mid-mountain habitats are located. The most frequently occupied habitat, with thirty
and forty species occur in the band height of 1000-2000 m
