Hilarious Video: Attenborough interrupted by Bird of Paradise

When it comes to presenting wildlife documentaries, we all know you can’t outdo David Attenborough – but this rowdy bird of paradise has a pretty good go at it.

Thanks to all of its squawking and melodramatic tail-flouncing, it took several takes for Sir David to get the sequence just right for his latest project ‘’.
