Birding in the rainforest of West Papua was relatively difficult particularly for those who were not accustomed to the steep slopes, muddy path and numerous insects. Despite the hardships that we faced during the trip, we consider that it was a successfull journey.
There were a lot of other birds that we watch in the jungle such as Brown Cuckoo-Dove, Lowland Peltop, Yellow-billed Kingfisher, and Hooded Butcherbird, Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, Pinon Imperial Pigeon, and Golden Myna. Some were sitting on lower branches of trees whereas many on top of high trees.
We spent the last three days of our trip staying in wooden bungalows on the crystal clear water of Raja Ampat. It was an unforgetful experience because we could enjoy swimming and snorkeling over pristine coral reef of the archipelago.
