“Birders in Paradise” is the topic of a naturalist presentation by Ram Papish, set for 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 20, at the OSU Extension Lincoln County building located at 1211 SE Bay Blvd. in Newport.

Dynamic tail wiggles, exposed blue brains, and full-decorated love huts are found among the beautiful and bizarre birds of tropical New Guinea. Explore the habits of Birds of Paradise, Bowerbirds and more while learning about the Indonesian government's efforts to develop ecotourism on the islands.
