Northern New Guinea montane rain forests

WWF Abstract

These isolated mountains are alive with bird "romance." Here, the rarest bird species in all of Papua New Guinea, the fire-maned bowerbird, builds intricate structures out of twigs and other materials. But these are not nests for raising young. Rather, males build these bowers to attract females for mating, often decorating them with pebbles, moss, or other colorful objects.
