BIRDS OF PAPUA

Irian Jaya, with its more than 678 recorded species, contributes around 44% of all Indonesian's birds total. It is also the second place on earth which inherits the second largest number of Birds Of Paradise. From all 43 species of this amazing heaven birds, which are only distributed from eastern Australia to New Guinea, west to the north Moluccas, 28 species can be seen at Irian Jaya's areas, with 5 species of them are endemic to this region.

For birding in Irian Jaya, we have chosen the best and easiest birding sites at BATANTA & SALAWATI ISLANDS at Sorong Regency (on the Vogelkop).

Accessible by boat from Sorong, the two islands are separated by a narrow, deep channel and the trip between the islands really is magic.

The bird endemic to these islands is Wilson's Bird-of-Paradise besides other rare birds such as Blue-breasted Pitta, Rufous-bellied Cockaburra, the endemic Red Bird of head back, Beach Kingfisher, Great billed Heron, Spice Imperial Pigeon, Western Crowned Pigeon etc.
