There are approximately 40 different Bird of Paradise species in Papua New Guinea, each with a different mating display. For his mating display, the male Six Plumed Bird of Paradise builds his dance floor, clearing a small patch of forest floor of leaves and twigs and pruning the surrounding branches of leaves. He wants all the visiting females to get a good look at his performance.
