Why New Guinea, Australia, and nearby islands did these magnificent birds evolve? How do those vibrant colors appear and disappear? Do they learn different dances or is it part of their genetic code. 

Oh Jeez, I'm just going to look and watch at all the beautiful birds and enjoy them fully. 

I do come to this site for peace, reflection, and contemplation. Birding-birds-and-all-things-birds provides my place to experience gratitude, humility and joy. Thanks dear ones.
