Biak Island

Birding walk

Of truly oceanic origin, the twin islands of Biak and Supiori, only separated from one another by a narrow mangrove-lined channel, harbor the most highly endemic avifauna of any singular land area in the entire New Guinea region, with up to 15 endemic taxa variously treated at species level. In addition, more than 20, often morphologically highly distinctive, endemic subspecies exist on the islands. So join us as we sound out speciation in these insular taxa, and later still be in the fortunate opportunity to continually add ‘new species’ to your life list from the comfort of your easy chair.
