Superb Bird of Paradise



About Superb Bird of Paradise
The male has jet black plumage with an iridescent turquoise blue crown and erectile breast shield that has a purple to purplish red sheen when light falls on it at certain angles; elongated nape feathers are velvety black with dark green iridescence, they form a huge, erectile cape. The bill is black, legs blackish, eyes dark brown.

The female has blackish-brown head and dark reddish brown upper parts; underparts whitish, tinged rufous brown on breast, finely mottled with grayish-brown to black.

The Superb Bird of Paradise will breed any month of the year and it varies between the range of species. The female builds a bulky nest of twigs in a tree, often in the crown of a palm tree or tree fern, generally a few yards above ground. The female will lay 1-2 cream or buff eggs, spotted, blotched or streaked with brown, reddish-brown, bluish-gray or lavender, incubated by the female alone probably for about 18-19 days.

Both the female and male lead a solitary life, though they sometimes join other species of birds when foraging. The males spend most of their time high in the trees, while the females and younger males spend far more time in the understory. The male and female rarely meet except for the purpose of mating. Each male will try to mate with more than one female.

These birds are in danger as they are threatened, due mainly to the accelerating destruction of their forest habitat.
