India’s Birds of Paradise (Expat Week #054)

Adventures of an American Traveler

Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. ~Stephen King

Birds of Paradise are rightfully known for their unparalleled beauty in the the animal kingdom. They are reknown for the glory of their plumage, colors that bewilder, bedazzle, mesmerize, hypnotize, shock. The males are set apart from the females and most other birds by their vibrant plumage in striking hues of red, yellow, green, blue and seemingly every other color variation in the visible spectrum.

India has her own birds of paradise albeit birds of a different species. In this country, it is the female that displays extraordinary colors against a backdrop of legions of males that are almost universally dull by comparison.
