“The Emperor bird-of-paradise (Paradisaea guilielmi) is endemic to Papua New Guinea. It is distributed in hill forests of the Huon Peninsula.
Their diet consists mainly of fruits, figs and arthropods….
Due to ongoing habitat loss, limited range and overhunting in some areas,
the emperor bird-of-paradise is evaluated as Near Threatened
on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.”
