DUNCANVILLE, TEXAS — Here’s a video clip I recorded on one of my last mornings in Cameroon. Of nearly 80 life birds I saw in Cameroon, this was one of my favorites: the African Paradise Flycatcher (Terpsiphone viridis). The clip opens with the bird in mid-song. At the end, I added two slow-motion “instant replays” of his flight.
