The birds-of-paradise are perhaps best known for the plumage of the males of the sexually dimorphic species (the majority), in particular the highly elongated and elaborate feathers extending from the beak, wings, tail or head.
The majority of species are found in eastern Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and eastern Australia. For the most part they are confined to dense rainforest habitat
