Manokwari lowlands

Birding walk

This half or full day's Manokwari birding walk takes us to a large tract of foothill forest that supports a well-diversified and colorful lowland forest avifauna including the restricted-range Red-billed Brushturkey, Western Crowned Pigeon, and Painted Quail-thrush plus six species of bird-of-paradise: Glossy-mantled and Trumpet Manucode, Magnificent Riflebird, and Magnificent, King, and Lesser Bird-of-paradise.


Possible year-round, but most certainly best from June to November.

Although the weather could have been better, the trip was really even better than expected. Iwein and Like you did a marvelous job in showing the birds and preparing excellent food.
