The female birds in the superb bird of paradise species are extremely low in numbers compared to their counterparts, so the competition for the male birds to find a partner for mating is high.
According to the reports, these birds are endemic to New Guinea and are found only in the island’s far-western Vogelkop region. Researchers renamed the bird as the superb bird of paradise owing to its bouncy “smiley face” dance routine.
