Lesser bird-of-paradise

Paradisaea minor, vor 1898

About the object

Birds-of-paradise live in New Guinea and on the surrounding islands. Seven species have been recorded. These birds show a distinctive sexual dimorphism. The magnificently colourful males have long decorative feathers that glisten like silk. These feathers are especially important during courtship, influencing the female’s selection of a mate. The females incubate and raise the young alone.
