Susanta also shared a fun fact while posting the video as he enlightened his followers about the introduction of the birds at Little Tobago island of West Indies in an attempt to save the species from extinction, which according to him failed. The greater bird of paradise is printed on the currency notes of Indonesia and also appears on Trinidad and Tobago's $100 bill. The males hop around with their flank feathers cocked and loudly calling, then pausing again, in order to woo females for mating. This mating behaviour most commonly occur during the spring season.
the IFS officer has been sharing a lot of videos and pictures since the coronavirus lockdown began in India. He shared videos of elephants, civet, bison, deer reclaiming the streets of cities and towns amid the nationwide curfew that has been imposed since March 25. Just another day, the Indian Forest Service officer shared a video of The colourful chestnut eared aracari, relatives of toucan.
