Paradisaea Raggiana

Bird feathers a Cultural Heritage

Since the release of its news by the Port Moresby Nature Park, the Ragianna Bird of Paradise was born on 27 June this year, its gender is still yet to be identified, and this could take up to 5 years for the gender reveal.

The Ragianna Bird of Paradise is an omnivore that eats a wide range of foods that includes fruits, berries, insects, frogs and small reptiles, and because they are not able to digest seeds, they disperse these through their environment.

When the males reach full maturity, they grow beautiful plume feathers of high traditional value in PNG, for costumes.
