Raggiana Bird-of-Paradise

Varirata NP

There can be few things on Earth more electrifying than seeing one of the birds-of-paradise in full display mode. Varirata NP provides a great chance at getting up close with them right near PNG's bustling capital, Port Moresby. A must-see event.

Where around Port Moresby can you see these? I am planning a trip and would like to catch a glimpse of this bird!

Raggianas have one of the most spectacular courtship displays of all the birds of paradise. The males perform feather shaking, wing clapping and head shakes on perches at a lekking site. The male's highly-colored feathers are collected by local people for wearing during ceremonies and festivals.
