The birds-of-paradise are members of the family Paradisaeidae of the order Passeriformes. For many years the birds-of-paradise were treated as being closely related to the bowerbirds.
There is some niche differention in fruit choice by species and any one species will only consume a limited number of fruit types compared to the large choice available. Hybridisation is frequent in these birds, suggesting the polygamous species of bird of paradise are very closely related despite being in different genera.
The diet of all species is dominated by fruit and to a lesser extent arthropods. Hunting for plumes and habitat destruction have reduced some species to cenxrawasih status; habitat destruction due to deforestation is now the predominant threat.
Internationally, it is named bird of Paradise. This bird is quite unique since the feather on the back part is lengthened looks like a hoodie in black.

Best known are the members of the genus Paradisaeaincluding the type speciesthe greater bird-of-paradiseParadisaea apoda. Unfortunately, Cendrawasih is included in the list of almost-extinct animals in Indonesia due to the deforestation to make agricultural land.
Paradisornis Blue bird-of-paradiseParadisaea rudolphi. Many hybrids have been described as new species, and doubt remains regarding whether some forms, such as Rothschild’s lobe-billed bird of paradiseare valid. Drepanornis Black-billed sicklebillDrepanornis albertisi Pale-billed sicklebillDrepanornis bruijnii genus: In spite of differences in the mouth, foot morphology and nesting habits they remained in the family until a study moved them to a separate family closer to the berrypeckers and longbills Melanocharitidae.
Molecular and morphological evidence places Macgregoria in the Meliphagidae and the Cnemophilinae near the base bigd the corvoid tree”. Birds of paradise cendrawazih generally crow-like in general body-form, and, indeed are the brother group to the Corvids crows and jays.
Hunting for plumes and habitat destruction have reduced some species to endangered status; habitat destruction due to deforestation is now the predominant threat. The wings are rounded and in some species structurally modified on the males in order to make sound. The ratio of the two food types varies by species, with fruit predominating in some species, and arthropods dominating the diet in others. The bird is only found in cendrawaeih Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and Australia’s east and consists of 14 vendrawasih and about 43 species.
Even the birds-of-paradise that are primarily insect eaters will still take large amounts of fruit; and the family is overall an important seed disperser for the forests of New Guinea, as they do not digest the seeds. This bird was once considered a beautiful bird but no legs. A Dictionary of Scientific Bird Names.
They have stout or long bills and strong feet, with around two-thirds of the species being strongly sexually dimorphic. Others, such as the Cicinnurus and Parotia species, have highly ritualised mating dances.
The two that are not are the monotypic genera Lycocorax and Bidboth of which are endemic to the Maluku Islandsto the west of New Guinea.
