The Space King of Saxony bird-of-paradise

A nebula creator, this bird carries the stars on it’s wings and plumes, leaving new ones in it’s path.  It’s chest is lit up like it’s own star, with orange and yellow feathers mimicking a sun’s surface.  There is a speedpaint for this image located here!

January 8, 2015 - King Bird of Paradise (Cicinnurus regius)

These birds are found in lowland forests in and around New Guinea. At 6 inches (16 cm) long, they are the smallest of the birds of paradise. Fruits and arthropods make up the majority of their diet. As in other bird of paradise species, the males perform elaborate courtship displays, fluffing their neck and chest feathers, fluttering their wings, and swinging their long tail feathers around. A strongly sexually dimorphic species, the females are brown with barring on their chests and undersides.
