Birds of Paradise

Climb up 130 feet into the crown of a rainforest tree in New Guinea and wait. And wait. Wildlife photographer Tim Laman tells Dick about his journey to photograph every species of the Birds of Paradise.  It took him 8 years and 18 expeditions to do it, and there are still a few he was not able to capture. The feathers and colors are hard to believe.

Music

"Nunca Mas" by Zuco 103 and "Frazee, Minnesota" by Phil Cook & His Feat
