Birds of Paradise (Family Paradisaeidae)

Mainly found in rainforests or other densely vegetated areas, the males generally have large patches of bright iridescent colours. All are found in the east and north-east of Australia, but only the Paradise Riflebird Lophorina paradiseus and Victoria’s Riflebird L. victoriae are endemic. Both the Trumpet Manucode Phonygammus keraundrenii and Magnificent Riflebird L. magnificus, both restricted to Cape York in Australia, also occur to the north in New Guinea.
