  1. Spectacular species! And how about this clever strategy:

    "It is a brood parasite to the green-winged pytilia. Male long-tailed paradise whydahs imitate the song of the male green-winged pytilia. The whydah chicks are larger and louder than the host chicks, so the foster parents will give them more attention than their own chicks."
