Paradise Riflebird

The paradise riflebird bird of paradise. Actually it isn’t so colourful. It is mainly found in Eastern Australia. It eats only fruits and insects. In displays, the male extends its wings and fans them upward with its head behind the wings to expose green throat plumage. Then it moves its head with open billed feathers. It’s about 30 cm long. The male is black with an iridescent greenish blue crown, throat and central tail feathers. It has a black curved bill, black feet, dark brown iris and yellow mouth. The female is an olive brown bird with bare blackish below. Its beak is very long and a little yellow on the beak. It is going to be endangered in a few days.

It lives in Eastern Austrailia
