The birds of paradise are members of the family Paradisaeidae of the order Passeriformes. They are found in western Indonesia, Torres Strait Islands, Papua New Guinea, and eastern Australia. The members of this family are perhaps best known for the plumage of the males of most species, in particular highly elongated and elaborate feathers extending from the beak, wings or head. Birds of paradise range in size from the King Bird of Paradise at 50 grams (1.8 oz) and 15 cm (6 inches) to the Black Sicklebill at 110 cm (43 inches) and the Curl-crested Manucode at 430 grams.
