The Blue Bird-of-paradise, (Paradisaea rudolphi), is a medium-sized RARE bird-of-paradise. The male is polygamous and performs a breathtaking courtship display only with the attending female nearby: he hangs from a branch upside down. The black oval with red margin at the center of his chest is rhythmically enlarged and contracted. His violet blue plumes spread out in a fan, swaying its body back and forth while the central tail feathers form two impressive arches down to either side.
