Birds and Mammals Name: Institution: Birds and Mammals Birds 1. Blue bird of paradise The blue birds of paradise are one of the most beautiful bird species. They are characterized with a blue light feather and brown tail feathers. These birds are popularly known to be found in the tropical forests such as the Papua Forest in New Guinea.
