The exhibit at National Geographic building, in conjunction with Cornell Lab, is fantastic. Took 8 years, 18 trips, to document all the Birds of Paradise. The birds are spectacular and their courtship dances and rituals astonishing. The explorers got footage of never-before-documented dances on leks on the ground and in the rain-forest canopy, an amazing accomplishment.
