Beware, Don’t Over Prepare

This beautiful six-plumed bird-of-paradise cleans and decorates his territory so that everything will be perfect for attracting a female.

Unfortunately, he’s a bit obsessive about it. He leaves to gather decorations when a female is nearby and misses his chance to meet her.

Sometimes it pays not to over-prepare.

  1. Thanks, Kate for sharing this video. I appreciate the cinematographer who captured this. The practice of the mating dance, accompanied by the music, was fun.
    Hope his efforts didn’t go to waste and that it wasn’t too long until another female came along.
