Birding Tour in Manokwari

Manokwari regency has been famous as a birding tour destination for years. There are several places that I promote on the internet as recommended sites for birdwatchers.
  • Lower Montane Forest of Warmarway - Although this birding site is considered as lower montane forest, the trekking routes to the dancing ground of Lesser Birds of Paradise are very steep. Birdwatchers have to be fit to walk for 1.5 hours if they want to watch paradise birds in this area. It is located on the eastern slopes of Arfak mountains.
  • Upper Montane Forest -  Arfak mountains have been the most popular birding tour destination for visitors who want to watch Western Parotia, Vogelkop Bowerbird, Magnificent Birds of Paradise, Cinnamon Fruit Dove, Hooded Pitohui, Papua Mountain Pigeon, Brown sicklebill, Black sicklebill, Flame bowerbird and a lot more. The birding site that I highly recommend is Mupi Gunung.
  • Aiwatar Hill - This is one of the best birdwatching sites in the world! I am serious about this. It is located between Manokwari and Sorong regency. I highly recommend this site to any avid birders. I will explain about it in a separate article in this blog.
