Queen Carola’s Parotia
The Queen Carola’s Parotia (Parotia carolae) also known as Queen Carola’s six-wired bird-of-paradise is a species of bird-of-paradise.
One of the most colorful Parotias, the Queen Carola’s Parotia inhabits the mid-mountain forests of central New Guinea. The diet consists mainly of fruits and arthropods. The stunning courtship dance of this species was described in detail by Scholes (2006). It is similar to that of Lawes’s Parotia, but modified to present the iridescent throat plumage and the flank tufts to best effect.
The name commemorates Queen Carola of Vasa, the wife of King Albert I of Saxony. The king was honoured with the King of Saxony bird-of-paradise.
Due to copyrights, there are currently no photos that I can use. The video is of a male Queen Carola’s Parotia showing off for the ladies. [He is definitely not “Quiet”]
