The view from my hide, in the jungle of West Papua, filming the Wilson's bird of paradise for #planetearth2 @BBCAmerica

The male Wilson's bird of paradise is one of the world's most colourful birds. He uses his colours to display to potential mates. He has a secret that he saves for the last part of his display - a vivid flash of his green throat feathers that firm a perfect half circle. This had never been filmed before from the female bird's point of view, until #planetearth2 on @BBCAmerica now.
